The colors Black and Peacock have also been discontinued, making way for Sage and Slate.  According to Rich Brinkman, VP of Sales and Marketing for Homer Laughlin,  “As we move these items to the discontinued list, we’re making room for some innovative new items to add to the Fiesta collection,” says Brinkman. “We design our new products and discontinue items based on demand from our customers and the marketplace. We study how they dine and entertain at home and create a collection to meet those needs.”

The original covered sugar began production around October of 1937 and was discontinued in 1969.  The original Utility tray was named "Utility" because it could be used for a variety of functions.  It was among the first additions to the original line in 1936.  The original vintage utility trays were made in the original 6 colors.  Original Carafe's were produced from 1935 to 1946 and were original considered water bottles. The ones discontinued in 2015 may be as hard to find some day as the originals.

Even though these items have been discontinued as far as production, there are still plenty of these items available for sale on Ebay.
