Colorful Plates Add Fun to the Table Submitted by MyFunCloset February 26th, 2010 Riviera, made by Fiesta in the late 40’s or 50’s I think. Big bright colors added so much festivity to the table.
When I first started collecting vintage dinnerware Riviera was the first set I had over 50 pieces of. Unfortunately, it was the orange that I love the best. But just like Fiestaware the orange was full of lead so all of those are double and triple boxed up and sealed in plastic and tucked away in the bowels of my storage garage. I can’t bear to dump them so they shall remain forever sealed in my possession.
I absolutely love the scalloped edges and think I have every plate, cup and serving piece of this that was ever made. Your colors are great.
Found on a basement shelf at my cousin’s home. Forgotten treasures that haven’t been touch since the late 50s. More to share with you soon.
I really dig these!
