Frankoma was founded by John Frank in Norman, Oklahoma, in 1933. He moved the company to Sapulpa in 1938, only to soon rebuild that factory after a fire later that year. The name Frankoma was created from Frank's last name and the last three letters of the state of Oklahoma. Affordable dinnerware and serving pieces, mugs, novelties, memorial figures, Route 66 items, limited editions, commemoratives, souvenirs--Frankoma Pottery has served the needs of everyday life since it's beginning.
This is a wonderful Frankoma stein in Onyx glaze This glaze color was used on items after 1934. I believe this mug to be from the 1950's. In 1954, the company switched to a brick red firing clay which was several miles from the factory in Sapulpa, Oklahoma. This clay was extracted from Sugar Loaf Hill and is referred to as Sapulpa clay. The bottom of the stein shows the red color of the clay. This is a must have for any Frankoma collector! Displays well from all sides.
Exceptional stein in that it is undamaged, no chips, no cracks, no scratches to glaze and free from crazing and repairs. Any non-perfections are from the firing/manufacturing process. The white spots are studio light reflections.
