Prairie Green? 64 Or G4?
Posted 29 May 2008 - 08:46 PM
I've googled and ebay searched with no answer to my question.
I don't know what this is. My guess- a Prairie Green pillow vase, ada. Am I correct? when I search Frankoma 64, I keep getting hits for 10" vases. G4 did'n get me anywhere either.
Are you able to find this one? Any help would be appreciated.
5"tall x 3.5" wide by 2" deep. It has a stamped Frankoma and has a ?? 64 ??
(I don't know what I'm doing with trying to insert pics. Please email/or give your email and I can send some pics to you) Thanks

Frankoma did in fact recycle the number 64 for a 9-inch octagonal vase beginning in 1974. It is a much more common piece; I see it frequently on eBay. Its book value is listed at $10-12.

What reference book would you suggest if I wanted to bone-up on Frankoma?
What are the "rare" glazes?
Thanks again. So glad I checked out this forum.

But there are earlier glazes that go back to 1933: Verde Green (1933-34), Verde Bronze (which evolved into Prairie Green) 1933-36, Old Gold (which evolved into Desert Gold) 1933-42, Maple (which evolved into Texas Brown and later to Osage Brown) 1933-34, Jade Green (1934-38), Fawn Brown (1934-42), Blue-Grey Jade (1934-38), Dove Grey (1934-38), Pompeian Bronze (1933-38), Cherokee (1933-38), Royal Blue (1938-42) and Gun Metal (1933-38).
You can see how getting to know a glaze can help you date the piece.
