Frankoma Pottery 1966-89 White Spanish Iron Trivet 3TR
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 trivet in White glaze. This glaze color was used on items after 1934. I believe this piece to be from the 1966-89 as this glaze was used for a very long time. 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 trivet shows the red color of the clay. This is a must have for any Frankoma collector!
Exceptional trivet 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.
