122 Collie in Flat Black

Recommended Posts

I am not a Frankoma collector, but found a beautiful collie bookend at the thrift store.  It is flat black and a little over 7” tall.  I think it is form #122.  I can’t find anything online that would give me an idea of its worth.  There isn’t anything like it on eBay.  Can you help me learn more?

Congratulations on your great find. This lovely sculptured collie's head is one of Frankoma's finest. I believe the glaze is gun metal, which would date it between 1933 and 1938. I'm at my office at the moment and without access to my Frankoma research materials, so I cannot give you a value approximation. I will get back to you, hopefully this evening, with more information.

KDR - I just got to the notification about this post - but saw that you had asked about it in the FB Frankoma Pottery Fans group.  The answers you received were on target " The clay is Sapulpa making this piece produced after 1954. All were produced circa 1958 or later."  It is a nice piece.  I have one in Brown, which is the primary color of Frankoma I collect.
