FIESTA® was the creation of Frederick Hurten Rhead, a second generation Stoke-on-Trent potter who had become Homer Laughlin's design director in 1927.
FIESTA® was an immediate hit with the public and, by it's second year of production, more than one million pieces were produced.
The original five colors were Red, Yellow, Cobalt Blue, Green and Ivory. Turquoise was added early in 1937. The shapes of FIESTA® were created in an Art Deco style with concentric circles highlighting the bright colors.
The first six colors were produced through the 1930's and 40's until a change in fashion direction dictated a change to a softer palette of pastel colors at the beginning of the 1950's.
Color trends moved back to brighter colors in the early 1960's and FIESTA® moved with the trend. By the late 60's earthtones were in vogue and the dinnerware industry turned in that direction. Popularity of these colors proved to be short-lived and sales began to fall. At the end of 1972, FIESTA® was retired after 37 years of production.




In the 1890’s there was a new migration into the rolling rich farmlands and small towns of the Philadelphia western suburbs. The railroad lines were bringing wealthy business men and their families to visit, then to build their estates along the “Main Line”. Although they came by train, once here they depended on horses to pull their buggies and coaches and carts. In April of 1896 a dozen local gentlemen discussed the need of better horses for their vehicles. May 22 a meeting was called by the gentlemen inviting their friends and neighbors to “effect an organization for the purpose of holding a Horse Show at Devon”. Less than two months later the first Devon Horse Show was held!
