  1. Last week
  2. I just found an eBay listing describing what I call a bean pot as also a cookie jar - is this what you're describing?
  3. Earlier
  4. according to your words, it maybe Salad Plate (aka side plate) or Bread & Butter Plate (aka dessert plate, cake plate), here is a complete China names for your reference https://docsbay.net/china-dinnerware-pieces-how-to-identify-what-you-have
  5. @plm555 you did a good job, I am sure other users will benefit from you taking the time to write this up.
  6. Relax. This is an iconic Frankoma piece. I have at least a half dozen of these bowls in different sizes and glazes. I just love them. They come in three sizes. Your 227 is the largest, with 225 and 226 being the small and medium, respectively. They were made from 1942 through the 1980s in most of the different colored glazes. The one you have pictured is in Prairie Green, and it appears to be Ada clay from your photo of the back side, but I can't be sure without a better picture. The leaf bowls aren't worth a great deal because so many were made and are still around. The Ada clay leaves, of course, are worth more than those made with Sapulpa clay. The prettiest one I have I bought on ebay. It was an Ada clay 227, and it had one of the really beautiful rutile glazes. However, before I even opened the box it came in, I knew it was broken I heard the pieces clanking together. The idiot who sent it had put hardly any packing material in the box. I glued it back together as best I could and I still have it. It's still beautiful, especially if you don't look close enough to notice the tiny pieces that are missing.
  7. Hey all ! Question ! I have a 227 leaf bowl in prairie green. All it has on the bottom is 227. No frankhoma. Has anyone ev er seen this ?

  9. hey here is 7 you can do in recipes in 5 min.
  10. For the crust: Place the flour, sugar, salt, and frozen cubed butter in a food processor. Pulse the mixture just until the butter & flour look like fine bread crumbs. Turn the processor to on, and slowly drizzle in the ice water until a ball of dough starts to appear in the mixer bowl. Stop the processor - you don't want to overwork the dough. Turn the mix out onto the countertop and form into a ball. Divide the dough in half, and wrap each with plastic wrap. Refrigerate at least one hour before rolling out. Preheat oven to 450°F (230°C). Filling:Place cherries in large bowl. Whisk together sugar, cornstarch, lemon juice and vanilla; pour over cherries and stir to coat. On lightly floured surface, roll out half of the pastry and fit into 10" (23 cm) deep dish pie plate; pour in cherry filling. Roll out top crust and cut into 1" (2.5 cm) wide strips. Weave strips over filling to form lattice top. Trim pastry and brush some egg wash under each strip where it meets bottom pastry edge; press with a fork to seal. Brush lattice with egg and sprinkle pie with sugar. Bake on baking sheet 15 minutes, then reduce temp to 375°F (190°C) and bake for 65 to 70 minutes or until pastry is golden and filling is bubbly and thickened.
  11. Here a awesome recipe check the video out https://dausel.co/wbVhay
  12. What is signed Fiestaware? Someone told me if the lettering on the bottom is raised and not stamped, that is signed and more valuable. True??
  13. Hi all I'm trying to identify an "orange-ish" Fiesta teapot. Not sure of it's actual color and have been able to access that it's not too vintage, but probably 90's? Uploading pics - I'm confused, as it only has an "H" and no additional letters and the "fiesta" is all lower case, so IDK what I have for display. Thank you in advance!
  14. Seena - I just saw your question and the response from Patricia as I overlooked the email notification. Here is my 2 cents - from a long time Frankoma collector: Picture does help, but I found several pictures of the 218 Scalloped Bowl on Ebay. They are common though none in the Rose colors at this time. This glaze is Brown Satin. Besides the book Patricia mentioned, there are other online resources. On Facebook - Frankoma Pottery Fans is strictly for collector's discussions - no buying or selling. There are websites by collectors, but this one is great for references, including colors - frankomacollectors.org. On the FB page, here is one discussion about the difference in the 2 rose glazes and I have included the referenced picture: Here's Desert Rose and Redbud side by side to help show the color difference. Desert Rose was an overspray glaze and much more matte than the Redbud. Redbud can be very light pink, like the scalloped vase on the right, or it could be really dark, close to Desert Rose. When Redbud is glazed darker, the main way to tell the difference is the matte finish and some "orange peel" like texture is Desert Rose, Redbud will be glossy. Redbud was used for several years vs Desert Rose was not used after mid'40s.
  15. Hi Seena, I'm sorry I overlooked your May 5 question. I'm embarrassed. I wish you had a photo of the bowl you describe. The book I always use to identify Frankoma (Collector's Guide to Frankoma Pottery by Gary V. Schaum) pictures almost every piece of Frankoma made up to 1990 -- emphasis on the word almost. The book lists a scalloped, 12-inch bowl with mold number 218, but it is not pictured anywhere in the book. It does state that they began making this bowl in 1942 and was still being made in 1990. Without a photo I cannot determine the exact color and I can't see the back stamp, which would determine approximately when the piece was made. If made of Sapulpa clay, the bowl is worth about $15; however, if made of Ada clay with an early back stamp, it could be worth $35 to $45, depending upon condition and color. If you can manage it, please post a photo of the bowl. I'm very curious as to why it was not included the my "never fail" book. Patricia
  16. Hi all, I found a light pink to rose bowl marked Frankoma 218. I haven't been able to find anything like it on the internet. I would be grateful for any information you could offer.
  17. Hi Claire, You have a #82 6-cup carafe, and I'm certain that glaze is Sunflower Yellow. Frankoma began production on that piece in 1958, so that rules out Ada clay. The carafe was in production for quite a few years and during those years, Sapulpa clay went through several different changes. The piece came with a lid which is not shown in your photo, so I don't know if you have it. The carafe and lid are pictured on page 176 of Gary V. Schaum's book, "Collector's Guide to Frankoma Pottery," and further described on page 187 with production dates and value estimates ($25-$45) depending upon color and condition. The Schaum book is out of print now, but used copies are often found on ebay and amazon.com. If you're interested in Frankoma, it's invaluable. I hope this helps, and if you have more questions, please let me know. Patricia Mitchell TexasCooking.com
  18. have a yellow carafe, but what shade of yellow is it? Close up it looks a banana with light brown specks. If it's Sunflower Yellow (yellow with brown specks) 1958 - 1960. Ada Clay 1933-1954 Sapulpa Clay ( Brick Red) 1954 -1979 Sapulpa with additives ( Pink) 1980s - The dates aren't adding up for the color & Clay. Please help . Thanks
  19. Thanks for your comment. I, too, love egg dishes, and sometimes serve omelets or just plain bacon and eggs for a quick supper. And thank you for the link you sent concerning electric smokers. I haven't had time yet to scrutinize it, but I'm certainly going to.
  20. My last minute favorite dish is egg omelet because it is easy to make LOL... but i think in dinner it is not a good idea so for dinner so i prefer to smoke or grill meat using my best electric smoker because i love to smoke and grill as i love bbq parties.
  21. Thanks for your reply. However, I have to correct an error I made when I answered you. The correct name of the gold/tan glaze is Desert Gold -- not Prairie Gold. The green glaze is known as Prairie Green. You can get some further information by going to Frankomaland.com at http://www.frankomaland.com/. Click around and I think you can pick up some good info. Patricia
  22. Thank you so much! I is super confusing when you are just starting out. Carrie
  23. Hello, The gold/tan glaze in Frankoma is known as Prairie Gold. "Plainsman" is a style of dinnerware that was produced. Sounds like you have a set of Plainsman dishes in Prairie Gold. Let me know if you have further questions. Patricia
  24. Hi! I'm just getting started and purchased a set of Frankoma dishes at an estate sale. I'm trying to identify it by color such as plainsman gold so I can purchase more pieces in the set. The plates are marked 5F, smaller plates are marked 5X and the serving bowl is 4P. Can someone please help me know what color these are? Thanks so much!
