Fiesta® Watercolors Series             Pattern No. (researching)

Fiesta® Watercolor Series
This pattern was introduced between late 2000 and early 2001.  It was produced on white Fiesta® & was an exclusive to Bloomingdale’s.  The series consisted of 4 luncheon plates (0465), the ring handle mug (0453) & the round serving tray (0468), each with their own design.

The serving tray & mug’s decal was a combination of each of the four luncheon plate’s designs showcasing, grapes, olives, persimmons & artichokes (a/k/a as the garden).

Some collectors call the olives – plums.  All pieces have cobalt on the rim.

Below is the back stamp for this series.  Notice the date code of OOC.
OO represents the year (2000) & the C represents which quarter of the year (third quarter).

HLC designed another version of the serving tray however, Bloomingdale’s decided to go with the decoration in the center of the tray instead of this version.

Another version of this series was presented to another retailer as an exclusive.  It was going to be called “Seasons of Fiesta® 2000” showcasing floral designs.  It was sampled on ring handle mugs (0453), luncheon plates (0465) & round serving trays (0468).  It looks like this pattern was sampled using different colors around the rim of the pieces as shown in the below pictures.  None of these sampled pieces were put into production.
