Fiesta Trivia Question: How many holes do the pepper shakers have? If you said 7, you would be right. If you said 6, you would also be right, it was a trick question. The pepper shaker had 7 holes until 1967, then they were changed to 6.

The Fiesta® salt and pepper shakers have a classic art deco look. A globe on a pedestal,, the the classic concentric rings on the top and base. The holes in the salt shakers were generally larger than on the pepper shakers.

The Fiesta® original salt and pepper shakers were available for sale separately and had cork stoppers in the bottom. The shakers were produced from 1936 to 1969. They were produced in the six original colors, then other colors were added. Medium green fiesta shakers are the rarest and most expensive sets. Red shaker production was halted in 1944, but resumed in 1959. The can also be found in the Ironstone and Amberstone colors.

You may find fiesta shakers with mold lines down the sides were they were not cleaned as well as they should have been before firing.

Harlequin salt and pepper shakers look completely different, being a 3 inch tall tower shape, so they should never be confused. Kitchen Kraft shakers do resemble the Fiesta shakers but they are bigger, so if you have seen Fiesta® shakers, you shouldn't confuse them.
