For some reason, orange Fiesta is called red. This plate is 12" in diameter and was used as a serving plate. Other sizes were 13, and 15". Fiesta was designed by the Englishman, Frederick Hurten Rhead, and was introduced to the American public in 1936 by the Homer Laughlin Pottery Company of Newell, West Virgina.

    The orange dish gains its radioactivity from uranium oxides in the orange glaze. This dish measured 20 millirad /hour when the counter was placed directly on it.
