Do vintage cups have always back stamps?

Recommended Posts

I have my mother's old Fiesta ware.  All of the pieces have the right back stamps EXCEPT the cups.  The cups don't have any kind of stamp. I confused about whether or not they are truly Fiesta.  She died in 1973 so they are old in any case. Thanks for the help.

Here is a link to our Fiesta identification page, which you may find helpful. In your case, however, the following excerpt from that page is this:

"HLC could not mark some Fiesta items because of design considerations. Examples of items without backstamps include vintage juice tumblers, demitasse cups, teacups and salt and pepper shakers. Of the vintage line, some ashtrays, egg cups, sweets comports and onion soup bowls are marked, while others are not."

It apparently comes down to the size of the bottom of a piece and if it's large enough to accommodate a backstamp. 

Hope this is helpful.
