HLCCA - Conference Exclusives

The Fiesta® presentation bowl was introduced in December 1997, 
when the 500 millionth piece of Fiesta® rolled out of the kilns. 
And in 1999, with chartreuse a newer color included in the color palette, presentation bowls in chartreuse were chosen to take center stage as centerpieces for HLCCA's first conference.

Two unique items auctioned off were a Joe Wells III autographed Fiesta® 9" plate in the newly introduced sunflower glaze, and one of the two made HLCCA Dick Tracy Fiesta® water disk pitchers.

  1. My favorites are:
    1. Retro Red-Stripe items
    2. Marigold Stick-Handled Demitasse cups
    3. Rosie Juice Pitcher

    I would love an opportunity to purchase some of these items.
