Just an FYI, Fiestaware (especially red and orange color) can contain a fairly large amount of Uranium depending on when and where it was made. This means that many of the dishes are quite radioactive. You should get a Geiger counter and check them carefully. Dishes that are radioactive should not be used to eat off of and should be labeled as such. Broken pieces are especially dangerous as the Uranium dust can be inhaled.
