Fiesta® Chop Plate Comparison

On all the plate variations above, (bread butter to chop) you will find
that the vintage plates will not always be marked, they will have a wet foot (glazed) & will have at least 3 sagger marks.  On the post 86 plates, you will find different back stamps & some of the ink stamps will not say “lead free”.  However, all post 86 Fiesta® is lead free even if not marked accordingly.
