cheapcarafe-150x150Collectors,

Do you have a vintage fiestaware red carafe? There are two up for sale right now. One is $150.00 and one is $50.00. What's the difference between the two? Is one really worth 3 times as much as the other?

These vintage red fiestaware pieces were produced for a short time in the late 1930’s and early 1940’s. These red carafes measure 9 ¼ “ by 7 1/8” by 6 1/8 “ and hold about 6 ½ cups of fluid. The main base of the carafe for the more expensive one is in overall excellent condition free from chips, cracks, etc. The carafe that is $100 less has two small chips. The more expensive one comes with the stopper that is also in good condition with the exception of a chip on the finial. It appears as though a prior owner tried to repair it but was missing a small piece. It also has a few lighter glaze misses on it. The cork is in great shape and in tact with a little discoloration at the bottom. The less expensive carafe doesn't come witht a stopper, but the stopper is listed separately.

So, which is a better buy? It depends on what you are looking for and what it is worth to you. I would buy the more expensive carafe witht the stopper. A piece that is still in perfect condition after about 70 will continue to grow in value. There are lots of chipped pieces out there.

The red carafe for $50.00 is still a good buy and worth considering....if you are going to keep it and it is for you, it will be a great buy. For resale in 10 years, I would pick the other one.
