FIESTA® Vintage Teapots

Posted on June 20, 2009 by FiestaFan

Collectors,

Can you tell the difference between a medium and a large teapot?
First of all, the medium teapots were produced for 32 years and the large teapots were produced for 11 years, making it more likely that you will find a medium size teapot instead of a large. The medium pot was produced from 1937 to 1969. The large pots were produced from 1936 to 1946.
On the medium teapot, the handle is "C"-shaped rather than a more pronounced ring, the lid finial does not flare and the spout is longer and arched.
The large teapot was produced in red until 1944. The medium red teapot was also halted in 1944, but resumed in 1959. It was one of the original pieces that debuted in January of 1936. In contrast, the medium teapot was released a year later.
Both sizes of teapots have a steam vent hole that was applied by hand, so location can vary per piece.

Prices vary on the teapots greatly depending on size and color, but there is no doubt that a medium green medium size teapot is the rarest and therefore the most valuable. Medium green pots have been know to sell for more than $1,500.
