Fiesta Boat and a Calico Soap Dish

This festive Fiesta Gravy Boat with it beautiful robust lines is in good condition with 3 chips on the foot (seen in photos). Also seen in the photos, are 2 teeny tiny reddish veins. For this reason it is priced low!
It will still make a lovely serving addition or pretty part of your Fiesta collection.
It measures 8 x 4.5 x 5. The mark on the bottom is “Fiesta HLC USA”. According to my Lehner’s Encyclopedia of US Marks, this piece is dated 1935 to 1937 “…a Sears product, No’s 135-140 ( these are the no’s used in the book) …was filed for registration on March 20, 1937 claiming use since November 11, 1935 for use in earthenware table service.”
Yes this boat has got some minor damage, but due to is 60 year old age, I feel this still has some great value to it! Also the yellow is rich and beautiful and will brighten up any table or collection! FREE SHIPPING! US & CAN

This well established brown Calico patterned soap dish is in pristine condition. No chips, cracks or crazing anywhere. The brown dots seen on the bottom of the dish in the pictures are not chips. They are just the brown color used in production or normal use wear marks. It measures 4 x 5”.A fine addition to your Staffordshire collection, but will serve as a soap dish as well! FREE SHIPPING! US & CAN
