Fiesta Kelston Ceramics with handpainted coloured dots ....

Post  Ev on Fri 2 Sep - 7:30

Very pleased to have found one of these plates that were made in the 1950's and 1960's.
There is no number, it just has Fiesta Kelston Ceramics on the back.
In trying to find a number, I found that this is an avidly collected pattern and bidding wars are normal on TradeMe, with pieces going for around $20 each and even up to $40 !! affraid
There was a collection of this tableware at the Crown Lynn Crockery of Distinction Exhibition in Wellington owned by Mary Morrison. She even had a old template that showed where each dot was to be placed and what colour it should be. Needless to say the end result rarely matched up with the template. Will put a photo up in the next few days.

I'm wanting to do a photo shoot of Fiesta and would like to include all of the 6 colours that the dots represent.

Mary Morrison's collection includes:

Burgundy
Orange
Dark Yellow
Teal
Tango Blue
Black

My plate above tells me that the colours are:
Burgundy
Caramel
Dark Yellow
Teal
Tango Blue
Black.

Am I not seeing the colours correctly? 
Or is Mary seeing Orange where I see Caramel?
Please check your Fiesta plates and let me know.
