Fiesta...Lemongrass VS Chartreuse...

I absolutely LOVE chartreuse Fiesta and I've been wondering how much difference there is between the new Lemongrass color and the post 1986 chartreuse color. I recently bought my first pieces of Lemongrass and decided to put them together to see how much of a color difference there is.

The candle holder is chartreuse, and the platter is lemongrass. When they are side-by-side you can really tell the difference. I prefer the chartreuse. I don't think I will be rushing out to load up on lemongrass any time in the near future. I'll stick with vintage Fiesta along with the post 1986 chartreuse and plum.


  1. Thanks for posting this photo. I've been recently collecting chartreuse as well. I love the color. I assumed that lemongrass was chartreuse with a new, updated name. Glad to see that there is indeed a discernable difference. Thanks again for the photo.

  2. Thanks for stopping by Greg! I kept thinking the same thing and was surprised at how much of a difference there was! When you see the lemongrass all by itself, it looks enough like chartreuse to think it would go together-it is more yellow-ish than the chartreuse-I was glad to know that I don't have to rush out and start collecting lemongrass too-lol!
