This Franciscan earthenware line was first produced in 1934 by Gladding, McBean, & Co. The company has changed hands several times over the years. In 1963 it became the Interpace Corporation, then in 1979 was sold to Wedgwood.
This serving bowl has the Interpace Franciscan Earthenware logo from the 1960's. The pattern is called Autumn Leaves. The background is actually an off white color with teeny dark speckles although it looks more white in the photos. The leaves are done in browns, yellows, greens and blues. The serving bowl measures 9.25" in diameter at the rim and stands 3" high. The bowl has some light utensil marks in the center which are only noticeable under bright light. There is one pinprick nick also with slight discoloration around it just off the center. Very tiny spot. Otherwise great condition.
Great collectibles, friendly service, careful packing and quick shipping. Purrfect!!
