Vintage Fiesta 12" Divided Compartment Plate

Vintage Fiesta 12 inch divided compartment plate

This Plate has the distinction of being the first piece dropped from the original vintage fiestaware tableware line. It was deemed to large and heavy to use and feedback came from the faithful retailer, Lazurus department store out of Columbus, Ohio, that perhaps a compartment plate more in line with the size of the 10 1/2" dinner plate would be more towards customers liking. Homer Laughlin must have agreed because they quickly pulled this lovely beauty and added the well known smaller 10 1/2" size. Collectors should look for these large examples to be adorned with an abundance of backside rings without stamps or markings. Never produced in turquoise (although I'm holding onto hope of one surfacing someday!). Also if you think all these backside rings are astounding, be sure to check out the cake plate.
