This nicely shaped coffee mug is from Frankoma and has a richly detailed Prairie Green glaze. I believe the shape is "Plainsman" and the clay is the later orangey-brown Sapulpa variety.
This nice piece measures 4 inches high, and 3 inches wide at the rim. It has one flaw, a glaze flake or shallow chip at the bottom edge of the handle, which has created a stress line in the glaze on that side of the handle. There are no other chips, flakes, or crazing. (I would actually use this mug without hesitation.)
The mug is clearly marked with an embossed "C1 Frankoma" logo. Price: $4.00.
Coffee Mugs, C12
Two richly glazed coffee mugs from Frankoma Pottery. I believe this glaze is either "Buckskin" or a light "Desert Gold-Rutile" (beige with golden brown) and the clay is the (redder) Sapulpa.
The cups measure 4-1/8 inches high at the rim and about 3-1/8 inches wide at the rim. Both cups have very shallow glaze flakes (shallow chips) on the bottom foot ring. There are no other cracks, hairlines, or crazing.
cups are marked with raised "FP" marks on the foot, along with
the number C12.
This nicely shaped pillow vase from Frankoma has a wonderful Prairie Green glaze. I believe the clay is the earlier brown Ada variety, rather than the later red Sapulpa. It has an incised mark "63 / Frankoma."
A heavy piece, this vase measures 7.5 inches high, 4.75 inches wide, and 3 inches deep. There is one serious flaw, a large 2-inch crack crossing one corner (as visible in the photo, at bottom).
These mugs are in good condition. There is some crazing on the interior of both, but no chips, cracks, or hairlines. The detail is richly defined, and the glaze glows.
They both have raised marks on the bottom for "C5 Frankoma." Price: $7.50
A richly glazed two-tone brown sugar bowl (with lid) and 2 bread and butter plates from Frankoma Pottery in the Plainsman pattern. I believe this glaze is "Brown Satin Rutile"( two shades of brown, not as orange as the camera flash makes it appear), and the red clay is Sapulpa.
The small plates measure 6 inches wide at the center. The sugar bowl measures 4.25 inches high at the top of the lid handle, and 5.75 inches long across the handles. All pieces are in very good condition, with no chips, cracks, hairlines, or crazing. The small plates show a bit of utensil wear and scuffing (see closeup photos).
All three pieces are marked "FRANKOMA." The sugar bowl has an impressed 5B mark, and the bread and butter plates have an embossed mark for 5E.
A Frankoma sculptured coffee mug, in a rich glaze I believe is Brown Satin-Rutile (two shades of brown, a bit darker and not as orange as my camera flash makes it look). It has a wonderful shape and coloration.
This mug measures 3.75 inches high at the sides and 3 inches wide at the rim. The condition is very good, with almost no signs of use or utensil ware, and no chips or cracks or fleabites.
On the red clay base, the mug has a raised (embossed) mark for "C-4 Frankoma." Overall, this piece has great detail and design, in a great glaze.
