What year?

Frankoma had to change the source / field for their clay which is what caused the change in clay color.  The clay color was not changed due to additives.

The original Frankoma clay, the lightest color, is known as Ada clay and was used from 1933-1954.

The dark red clay, which collectors call "red clay", was used from 1955-1980's.

The lighter pink clay, called pink or new clay, has been used since 1980's and is still in use by the latest owners of the Frankoma brand and molds.

There is a great group of collectors and former Frankoma employees called Frankoma Pottery Fans on Facebook.
