Below are a few examples of unused decal sheets that have survived over the years. Some of the images may look reversed from what you are used to seeing with fired examples. Local potteries would purchase decal sheets from a number of different suppliers, both domestic and foreign. The decals were then cut from the sheets to be applied to glazed ware where it would be fired and become permanent.

The decal sheets shown come from the collection of The Fiesta® Tableware Company (formerly HLCCo) unless otherwise noted.

Hacienda decals. These were used on Nautilus, Swing Eggshell, Century, and other shapes from the late 1930s to the early 1960s.
