Back of plates

New listing! Take your pick of very hard to find Frankoma Pottery collector Christmas plates in mint condition, designed by Joniece Frank, daughter of John Frank (founder of Frankoma Pottery). 1 King of Kings from 1970. 2 O Come Let Us Adore Him from 1981. 3 The Wise Men Bring Gifts from 1983. Each plate has the impressed Frankoma mark on the back along with Jonice Frank's signature and the J.F. copyright for the year the plate was issued. Frankoma Pottery was founded by John Frank, born in Chicago on January 31, 1905. A university art teacher, he accepted a position at the University of Oklahoma's newly created Ceramic Art Department where he taught courses in ceramics from 1927 to 1936. Frank met Grace Lee Bowman on January 30, 1928, and they married the following September on the bride's twenty-third birthday. While Frank was still teaching, the couple purchased a small building in Norman, Oklahoma to house their new business, Frank Potteries, which later became Frankoma Potteries. John Frank passed away in 1973, and his youngest daughter Joniece took over operations. A fire hit the plant in September, 1983, but the Frankoma molds survived because of John Frank's foresight in arranging for storage of the molds in a fireproof room. The plant was quickly rebuilt and production restarted by July, 1984, and Frankoma continued production until December 31, 2004.

These Frankoma Joniece Frank designed Christmas plates measure approximately 8.0" in diameter, have holes for a wall hanger on the rear, and are in excellent condition, coming to you direct from a Portland, Oregon estate collection of vintage Frankoma pottery exclusive to Collectics.

Cool shape and color is featured in this mid-century vintage Hull Pottery ceramic that's a large size at approximately 12.0" x 11.5" at the widest points and 2.5" high, and it could be used in a variety of ways- a serving dish, an ashtray, for hors d'oeuvres or nuts, or just as a cool ceramic display on a stand. We love the rich dark glaze with speckle highlights contrasting the top portion only for some added design flair- see the photographs. However, the shape is the most interesting aspect of this particular practically screams fifties and sixties design! Although best known for their pastel matte glazed ware, some of the Hull Pottery lines were higher gloss as is this one. The pottery is in excellent condition and is properly marked impressed on the bottom Hull USA and the model #.    $38.00

New listing! Pink Earth clay ceramic mermaid is a whimsical and fun wall hanging that's sure to generate questions and complements from your guests. We particularly love the long flowing hair and the rich acquamarine colors, but others we showed her to were struck by the detailing and colors of her fish tail and the realistic surface coloration of her rock outcropping she leans against. The facial features are particularly whimsical and fun, with big round eyes and rich full lips rendered in small bits of clay and hand formed. The piece measures 9.5" high and 7.0" wide, and it's slightly curved on one side and the top to add realism and depth to the wall hanging. It has a wire hanger on the back which goes through 2 loops which are molded right into the clay for a safe and secure foothold, and it's impressed in the back "Pink Earth". It's in excellent condition and comes to you direct from a Reno, Nevada estate collection.      $65.00

Excellent pair of Ecanada Art Pottery flower pot planters in the style of Wedgwood Jasperware. Each pot is in very good condition and measures approximately 6.0" high and 7.25" wide at the top opening. The pottery is marked on the bottom "Ecanada Art Pottery" and "Made in Canada". The Ecanada Art Pottery of Hamilton, Ontario was the genius of one man, George  Emery (l88l-l959), who produced his art pottery until 1953 when Ecanada ceased operation. The versatile pots are in excellent condition and will really make a design statement in your home. rb   $145.00/pr
P004 Whimsical, fun, and extremely well done ceramic stoneware face jug is less grotesque than many of this genre and rather unique in that we surmise this one is of a woman. The glaze is dark and rich, almost glowing, and we love the fine details such as the individual stems for eyelashes, large pink lips, and don't miss the diamond stud earrings. We also like the ripple hair effect that makes this jug look almost as good from the rear as from the front, and it's just a very well done, fairly modern example of the form. This face jug measures approximately 7.0" high and 7.5" in diameter, and it's signed on the bottom Maryane Hawthorne 2003 #12. It's in excellent condition, part of a Macon, Georgia estate collection of unique southern pottery and ceramics. /85 SOLD
P005 Very fine Weller Pottery decorated bulbous Velva vase with handles standing 5.75" high and approximately 6.25" wide at the widest point. The top opening is 3.0" in diameter. The brown matte glaze is very rich and has just a hint of gloss, and the front decoration is cleverly interpretive. You don't see too much Weller Pottery anymore, and this piece is in excellent condition with no damage, and it's properly marked on the bottom Weller Pottery, the artist's mark, and the production markings 541-12R.120    SOLD

Sure not to last, this new listing of shells playing cards may not literally be pottery but when you see it you might switch your allegiance to seashells. The four whimsical crabs playing cards are each enjoying a cigar while looking at their card hands while ice cold cans of Coca-Cola sit on the shell card table. Right down to their feet, the whimsical character depictions are sure to become a conversation piece in any room in which they reside. In the photographs, we tried to capture the fun details like their eyes, mouth, cigar, and the fact that you can see exactly what cards each player has. The piece is really pretty beyond all that, in excellent condition and measuring approximately 4.75" high and 5.5" in diameter. Before residing in their new home to be after Collectics, the shell family was living in a Rumson, NJ estate.   $45.00

This mint condition ceramic shoe is an excellent example of mid-century California pottery at its best. The rich color and glaze really gives it a realistic quality when combined with the highly detailed shape right down to the unbuttoned shoe flap and button holes. It's an elegant and stylized shape reflecting the attention to form that made vintage California pottery stand out. The shoe measures approximately 9.5" high and 8.75" front to back, and it looks so real you'll want to put it on! Part of a major midwestern collection of California pottery, the shoe is marked on the bottom "Calif USA" along with the style number.    $48.00

Cute vintage ceramic music box in the shape of a highly detailed young girl holding a rose and a basket of flowers. The colors are vivid and the realism evident, with decoration not just on the face but throughout the piece right down to the folds and patterns on her skirt. It's in working condition and plays a nice song when the mechanism is wound on the bottom, and the girl turns as the music is playing and the music mechanism unwinds. Good detailing and workmanship, it's in very good condition save for a tiny flea bite on one of the flowers, direct from the shelf of a Vermont country estate.      $38.00
P009 Pretty marked Italian Deruta ceramic hand painted dish standing approximately 1.75" high and 8.0" in diameter. The floral and leaf hand painted decoration is exceptionally well done in typically vibrant Italian colors and it's incredibly lifelike, and it combines painted decoration with raised lines in the pottery to create additional decorative and three dimensional effects. We love the antique forest green trim line, and the plate is ready to hang on the wall or looks great on a display stand. On the bottom is the mark "Deruta", and it's in excellent condition direct from a Palm Springs, CA estate.  /26 SOLD

Super set of 4 Japanese egg cups with hand painted singing birds decorating the surface. We are particularly fond of vintage egg cups that have the cracked egg tops, and all 4 of this matching set have that design element to great effect. Some of the cups retain the original paper Diamond Japan paper label underneath. All 4 vintage egg cups are in excellent condition and measure approximately 3.5" high and 7.0" and 2.25" in diameter, right off the shelf of a Greenwich, CT country house. $42.00/set of 4
P011 Exceptional Canonsburg Pottery Company Butterscotch Ironstone egg plate has space for 12 eggs in its 9.25" diameter with the added benefit of being oven proof, dishwasher proof, and detergent proof. Canonsburg Pottery Co. was formed in 1901 and remained in business until 1978, well known for their durable and stylish wares and avidly sought still today by collectors. While Canonsburg china and regular plates are somewhat more common, the ironstone egg plates have become nearly impossible to find. We particularly like the Butterscotch pattern with the speckled glaze effect that just seems perfect for a vintage egg plate. It's in mint condition and fully and properly marked on the back with the Canonsburg Pottery Company trademark and markings. /26 SOLD

New listing! Very pretty handpainted Peruvian ceramic ring holder in a vibrant, colorful floral design and in very good condition with no chips or damage. It's a nice decorative piece to display, but also something you can use every day. It's marked on the bottom "Peru" and comes from a San Antonio, Texas estate collection. /24      $24.00
P013 Vintage Mammy cookie jar is a classic of black memorabilia, but alas this one- while marked McCoy - is a reproduction albeit with significant age but in our view not McCoy. Truth be told, there were only 2 McCoy Pottery mammy cookie jars that ever went into production, and sadly this is not one of them. Of course, we noted in a quick search of a major online auction site last night that 100% of the alleged McCoy mammy cookie jars were fakes. We are totally honest with our valued visitors here at Collectics, so this mammy cookie jar - while it has good decorative value - is not in fact original McCoy and thus being sold as a decorative piece versus the $500+ or so an authentic McCoy mammy would likely bring at retail. This reproduction McCoy mammy cookie jar is still old and quite well done, and it's in very good condition with no damage and only minor crazing to the glaze except one small horizontal area on the rear which is slightly more pronounced - see next to last photo. It's part of a major Atlanta, GA estate collection of fine vintage American pottery and illustrates that even experienced collectors can be fooled by fakes. /55 SOLD

Fun rooster planter is done in a cream, off white ceramic and would be a whimsical addition to any kitchen or dining area. With its head crown and flowing tail plumage, a rooster makes a particularly nice planter in which you can plant a variety of greenery or flowers to enjoy each day. The piece is in very good condition with no chips or damage and measures approximately 9.25" high, 9.0" head to tail, and 3.5" wide. This rooster planter comes right off the shelf of a Hilton Head, SC beachfront condominium.      $24.00

New listing! Old Italian ceramic pair of bird planters that would look great individually but are very rare to find as a matched pair. Each of the two features a bird perched atop a wicker basket that's a great size for a small plant or flower or just to keep loose items around the home. Each measures approximately 7.25" high, 7.25" wide, and 4.25" deep, and they're marked on the bottom "Made Italy". Given the age which is at least from the 1950s, they've survived in pretty good condition except for a single chip and crack on one of the pieces on the vine on which the bird perches, and both have a number of tiny glaze flecks which can be repaired or left as you so desire- for a piece like this, we recommend leaving them as they don't detract whatsoever from the visual experience.     $48.00/ pr

Whimsical pair of ceramic wall plaques, probably German, each measuring approximately 5.75" in diameter, in excellent condition direct from an East Hampton, NY estate. These are old and not reproductions, highly detailed and colorful depictions of a y oung man blowing his horn and a young lady holding her bouquet of flowers. Both boy and girl sit on the side of a fence while a bird perches beside them, and note the detail in the clothing and a particularly the faces. The plaques are marked on the back with "F37", and they're ready to hang on the wall.    $95.00/pr

Vintage 1970s hand painted egg plate with hen, one of the best examples of this work we have ever had here. We love the speckled green of the 6-egg egg plate, and the chicken has vibrant feather colors, a great face, and covers a center compartment that's useful to have a complement to your deviled eggs. It's got a great look and is a hard to find size at approximately 6.75" in diameter and 1.25" high (plate) and 4.0" high with the hen. The bottom is marked with incised marks "Elizabeth Kim 1971", and it comes to you direct from a Palm Springs, CA Italian ceramic consignment exclusive to Collectics.   $32.00

A beautiful piece of Royal Haeger! This is a white planter in mint condition with the original sticker still partially intact on the bottom. This beautiful planter depicts a woman, perhaps the Virgin Mary, praying and has a lovely glow about it. It measures approximately 9.0" high and 6.0" wide, and you'll enjoy this piece anywhere in your home.    $42.00

Very cool midcentury ceramic donkey planter has a rich brown glaze and striated white to brown decoration on the donkey's head and on his back around the planter portion of the pottery. We love his fun, whimsical facial expression looking down a bit with ears raised, and his 2 front legs are crossed for a little added flair. This vintage 1950s / 1960s ceramic donkey planter measures approximately 10.0" head to tail, 4.5" wide, and 10.25" high to the top of his ears. It's in very good condition with a bit of roughness, probably original to the manufacture but possibly from age wear, around the perimeter of the planter portion of the ceramic donkey. The bottom of one foot is marked USA; we believe this is probably Royal Haeger missing its paper label as is the case with many (most) Royal Haeger works. $65.00

Cool marked Takahashi San Francisco Le Chef, hand painted ceramic mug that features a whimsical character at the bottom with big eyes, big nose, and a super big handlebar mustache that's sure to evoke a laugh. We love the contrast between the creamy off white ceramic of the top 2/3 of the vessel combined with the more rustic brown lower third that includes the whimsical face and ears sticking out from the side. The bottom is marked with the Takahashi San Francisco mark, Le Chef, and Hand Painted. It's in excellent condition and even retains the original paper label although faded and hard to read, and it stands approximately 5.25" high and 3.75" in diameter at the widest point. $22.00
