Large Frankoma Console Bowl #217

Recommended Posts


I have a wonderful Frankoma Console Bowl marked #217. I am trying to find more information on the bowl, but am having trouble finding another bowl of this size. The bowl has a crack on the underside, which appears to have occurred during its firing process, because the glaze contours into the crack.

Could this have been a prototype of some sort that was discontinued? I feel this is possible, and maybe it was discovered that the bowls of this size did not handle the firing process well. I notice pieces of this size are quite difficult to come by.

Any information would be appreciated. Thank you!

This bowl is not really common, but it's not rare, either. It is certainly not a prototype - it was a normal production item. While it's true that it's harder to fire large items than small ones, there are several items as large as your bowl. Value in Schaum's book is $15-20.
