First produced in the mid 1960s, the Granada shape was used mainly as a promotion for L & H Interantional's Sheffield lines. According to the HLC mold notes, by early 1967, Granada consisted of plates, bowls, shakers, butter dish, teapot, jug, utility bowl, ashtray, sauceboat and coffeepot. The covered butter is a modified version of the Oribt shape.

Some of the shapes would undergo minor revisions, but there is basically one style: round shapes with an embossed scalloped decoration. On flatware, the scallop is towards the rim; on the hollowware it is almost mid-body. The hollow forms are cylindrical with a stretched appearance. This stretch feature is repeated on the handles.

Gold and green are the most common colors used on the Granada shapes, but speckled white glazes were also used.

Granada was produced mainly in the late 1960s and throughout the 1970s.
