Fiesta Tea Time Challenge Answers

Have you taken the challenge? Can you tell the difference between old and new Fiestaware? If not go the the following blog "Fiesta Tea Time Challenge" and see before you read on.

1. Old:  Turquoise made from 1937 -1969 (this one was my mothers from the 50's)
2. New: White made from 1986- present (bought at a garage sale)
3. Old: Colbalt Blue made from 1936 -1951 (this one was my mothers from the 50's)
4. New: Periwinkle Blue made from 1989- 2006 (bought at a garage sale)
5. Old: Old Ivory made from 1936-1951(this one was my mothers from the 50's)

A. OLD FIESTA MARKING  “HLC on bottom, Genuine on top" Ink stamp under glazing
                          be careful- I do have new pieces with         fiesta         indented stamp, no Genuine on top 
                                                                                      HCl  USA
B. NEW FIESTA MARKING  "HLC on top in Capital Letters"  indented stamp
C. OLD FIESTA MARKING  "HLC on bottom"  indented stamp

            if it says "Lead Free" on the back stamp it was made after 1986
