Radiology Funny of the Month
The accompanying photo shows two pieces of Fiestaware produced by Homer Laughlin Company of West Virginia: a Fiesta red saucer and an ivory bowl. In each case, uranium was used to provide the color of the glaze. Although the radioactivity of both is easily detectable, that of the Fiesta red is head and shoulders above the ivory.

It is usually said that Fiestaware came in five colors when it was introduced in 1936: red, blue, green, ivory and yellow. While this might be true, the oldest newspaper account that I could find, from June of that June, only identified four: “old ivory, Chinese red, blue or green. The earliest mention of yellow that I have found was in a newspaper advertisement from January 1937.

Apparently red was the first color that the company selected when designing the product, and blue was the second (these were the colors of the Fiestaware that Andy Warhol collected). Since the idea was to mix and match, the various colors had to be compatible.
