Watermelon on Scarlet Pattern No. 5809
A lot of people seem to get this pattern confused on where it was sold.
In 2007, JC Penney wanted some decorated Fiesta® for their stores. This pattern is one of the designs that was similar to the Betty Crocker watermelon pattern that was produced on Fiesta® pieces glazed in Rose. So people think the scarlet watermelon items were a Betty Crocker item, when in fact they were JC Penney’s. HLC’s retail outlet store also sold this design.
It can be found in the following shapes: Luncheon (0465) Large Oval Platter (0458)
