Ranch

2 posts in this topic

Hi all, I have been collecting Frankoma Ranch pattern items, but only the ones that show a "Running W" brand, having been a King Ranch fan since I was a kid riding Quarter Horses. Can someone tell me if these pieces were early and was there some problem that the running W doesn't show on all the pieces?

I sent an email with the question about the King Ranch running W brand, this is the answer from the Manager there at Frankoma Pottery. LampasasRiver...................................................................

The ranch pattern was originally intorduced in 1992. The pattern honored various cattle ranches around the rim of the pieces.

We were asked by the King Ranch to design a pattern exclusively for them with only the running W. Sometime late 1999 or early 2000, they asked us not to use the running W on our ranch, so the brand was removed from all the master molds.
