Shiny Turquoise Or Aqua Glaze

Recommended Posts

Here's what Collector's Guide to Frankoma Pottery by Gary V. Schaumm has to say about production periods for turquoise.

Turquoise - 1942

Thick, creamy blue/green

Turquoise, 1951-54

Translucent glossy, blue/green

Turquoise, 1955-57

Glossy blue/green with red clay showing

The appearance of the turquoise glaze has much to do with what type of clay it was used on. Frankoma stopped using the light beige/tan Ada clay in 1954 and began using the brick-red clay known as Sapulpa clay. I hope this information helps you date your Frankoma.
