Vintage Frankoma Pottery Desert Gold Plainsman Saucers - Set of 4 - Classic Oklahoma Art Pottery - Side Plates


Beautiful Desert Gold creamer from the Plainsman line by famous Oklahoma art pottery Frankoma Pottery. These are the saucers for the set, and can go with any of the cup designs, or be used as side plates as they are smooth, sizable, and not indented in the center. They no not have an item number on the bottom, but are clearly marked Frankoma. I would say these have a dark red clay.

Frankoma Pottery was started by pottery teacher at the University Oklahoma, John Frank. Frank discovered the clay of the region to be rich and distinctive. His love of making pottery outshone his desire to teach and he soon left his position to become a potter full time, founding his own pottery works. Frank was inspired by themes of the Southwest, and his designs reflect that strongly.

John Frank died in 1973, and the pottery was taken over by his daughter, and then other owners. It has struggled over the years, but continued, off and on, to make outstanding wares based on Frank's designs.

Early Frankoma was made with a light Ada clay, and later with a brick red Sapulpa clay. The Desert Gold is a later glaze color, and the clay color is a brick red.

CONDITION: Excellent with no chips, cracks, or nicks. Lovely smooth finish.

SIZE: 5 3/4 inches wide.
