VINTAGE FIESTA BOWL: COVERED ONION SOUP

Vintage Fiesta Covered Onion Soup Bowl

VINTAGE FIESTAWARE COVERED ONION SOUP BOWL

The covered onion soup bowl is the Cadillac of the Fiesta line. The onion soup bowl was the second piece discontinued by the fall of 1937. Since turquoise was introduced merely a few weeks before this piece was cut, the turquoise covered onion soup bowl demands a fierce price.

In the picture to the left is the onion soup bowl next to the sugar bowl. The sugar bowl measures 5 1/2" tall and 5 1/2" from handle to handle - so the onion soup (at under 5" tall) is shorter and wider.


NES: No Established Value. There are just not enough of these out there for there to be a market value on these Ultra Rare Red Striped Fiesta Covered Onion Soup Bowls. Wow!
The very first version of the covered onion soup bowl will be found with a flat bottom inside (much like the flat bottom early teacups). Early in 1936 the bottom was rounded, the mark was removed from the mold and the flange wasn't as large. The handles, knob, or finial and the foot were all attatched by hand.

Dimensions:
6 1/8" w from handle edge to edge, x 4 1/2" tall from base to top of knob, x 2 7/16" width of base/foot. Lid is 4 7/8" wide.

Marks:
Unmarked, or inmold mark on early flat bottom varieties.

Years of production:
1936 - 1937 (less than one year!)
