I am typically a Fiestaware girl, but when a family member gave me this piece I absolutely fell in love! I am always hesitant to use the word "mint" but it appears to be flawless. There are no chips, cracks, or crazing of any kind. It looks like is has been barely used. The problem is, I know nothing about it. I can only speculate given the knowledge that I have from researching vintage Fiestaware, such as the color of the glaze. It reminds me of Radioactive Red, however I have no idea how old it is, the history, ect. Any insight would be greatly appreciated.

    It's certainly going to be radioactive as well as the fiesta. I just got a geiger counter. all the red or orange or yellow pottery I have from this era is scary hot. Even my yellow roseville pinecone was scary hot.
