Old Or New?

Recommended Posts

Frankoma used Ada clay (that is, clay found in the Arbuckle Mountains outside of Ada, Oklahoma) from 1933 until 1954. It's color is beige or light tan. Late in 1954 Frankoma began using a brick red clay found nearer their plant in Sapulpa. During the 80's Sapulpa clay was modified with additives that changed the color to light orange or pink.

Therefore, a 1973 Indian head would not have been made of Ada clay.
