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.

    Another nice bit of fiesta ware mark. And great link scruples. I wonder if these are radioactive. I don't have a geiger counter to tell, but going by there bright colour i wouldn't be surprised if they are..I'm hoping for a little Geiger counter for Xmas, if everyone chips in, who knows i might get one, my family know I'm a bit obsessed with anything radioactive, hence my collection of uranium glass. if i got one I'll be pointing it at all my old pottery & depression glass :)
