Black Cat Collection Pattern No. (researching)
This pattern was introduced on black Fiesta® as a Betty Crocker™ exclusive in 2003. The initial pieces released were the luncheon plate (0465) & ring handle mug (0453). In 2004, Betty Crocker™ expanded the line adding the dinner plate (0466), small bowl (0460), Medium oval platter (0457), large pitcher (0484), small juice pitcher (0485), 2 quart bowl (0455) & chop plate (0467).
The pattern was discontinued when Betty Crocker™ discontinued their sales catalog in 2006. Color in the decal is persimmon.
The below picture shows the Betty Crocker™ ad from the Holiday 2004 catalog page 59 showcasing this design.
