You collect them, your mom collected them, your grandmother collected them: Fiesta dishes are attractive, functional and down-right American. Collections of multi-colored Fiesta dinnerware are also very pleasing to the eye...
Made is West Virginia, Fiesta dishes have been made by the Homer Laughlin Pottery Company since 1936. Heidi Kellner, the ultimate Fiesta collector, has a Web site that documents the history of Fiesta dinnerware and has been interviewed by Collector's Weekly. If you're interested in collecting Fiesta, Kellner recommends reading the Collector's Encyclopedia of Fiesta by Sharon Huxford.
Also, check out Amy Levine's "Dishes," a documentary about collecting Fiesta dishes.
