There seems to be some controversy over the exact assortment of Valencia. Vintage pamphlets with drawings show Valencia as a direct copy of Fiesta's original assortment with Kitchen Kraft equivalents -- 70 pieces total with some items sounding very familiar to Fiesta collectors: 8", 10" and 12" flower vases, mustard, marmalade, 2 pt. jug, 7 pc. nested bowl set, ice pitcher, tripod and bulb candleholders, footed salad bowl, carafe, utility tray and so on.
Author Harvey Duke questioned if some of these were actually put into production since many were not featured in photographic ads or price listings and the pieces themselves have yet to be found.

with an original sticker. Dominick says, “...Shawnee pieces are often found with
hand-painted decorations of this sort, especially Shawnee miniatures, but I have
never before seen a piece of Valencia decorated this way.”
