Hobnail dinnerware was developed in the spring of 1947, but never went into production. Designed by Don Schreckengost, it was created along side the 75th anniversary Jubilee shape. Only four pieces were modeled before the project was abandoned: the 10" plate, 9" plate, a saucer, and a teacup, each with hobnails in various shapes and configurations.
The teacup was picked up from Jubilee. It was altered to have hobnails on the outside. The 9" plate and saucer were made with a very narrow rim to showcase the hobnails while the 10" plate was made with a wide rim. Sample pieces were glazed pastel colors, some of which were used in the Jubilee line.
Shown below are experimental Hobnail pieces from the collection of The Fiesta® Tableware Company.
