This sale is for a vintage Fiestaware Chartreuse Large Disk Water Pitcher. . The color was introduced in 1951 and was discontinued in 1959.There are no cracks, chips, fleabites or scratches. Shows the 3 sag pin marks. One teeny pin size glaze pop near the spout and one the same size near the handle. An absolutely outstanding and gorgeous piece.
The disk water pitcher measures 7 1/2" x 8 3/4"by 5". Holds 70 oz. This disk pitcher is guaranteed to be vintage. The purest and simplest physical way to tell if the pitcher is vintage is to look inside where the handle is attached at the top. On vintage pieces handles were applied by hand, so the inside would be smoothed down by hand (you'll notice variation in this spot on the old pitchers from different potters techniques).After reintroduction, the post 86 handle was attached differently and there is now a manufactured "dimple" on the inside body. If there is a dimple on the inside of the pitcher, where the handle top joins the body of the pitcher, then your pitcher is post-1986 and not vintage. The rarest and most difficult colors to find are the Medium Green and Chartreuse.
