Vintage Fiesta Relish Tray Center Inserts

Vintage Fiestaware relish tray center insert

Fiesta pottery price lists once included a coaster. There is speculation that this piece also doubled as a coaster. Shown below are the two different types of bottom in the making, from the mold, impressed marks that can be found. Note the three stilt marks that are from a triangular apparatus used to hold the fully glazed (wet foot) example in the kiln. Where the stilt holder would come in contact with the glaze it would stick and when removed little pieces of glaze would chip off with it. These marks can often be mistaken as chips but are actually just part of the pottery making technique.

Center Inserts: 3 1/4" across x 1" tall | Base: 11" wide x 1 1/2" tall | Side Inserts: 2 1/2" x 2 1/2" x 2 1/2" x 6 and 1" tall.


Relish tray centers are usally marked in the mold with the impressed mark "fiesta HLC USA" . There are two versions of this mark, one with rings, as shown above in the turquoise and yellow examples and one without the rings. I find ringed examples are actually more common than examples without rings.
