Vintage Frankoma Trivet Tile
Vintage 1930's Frankoma Trivet highlighting the Seals of "Five Civilized Tribes of indians in Oklahoma."
Before it was Frankoma Pottery, the company was called Frank Potteries. In 1933 John Frank, teaching Art and Pottery at the University of Oklahoma, was inspired to use clay deposits from Oklahoma. With only a small kiln, a butter churn for mixing clay and jars for glazes, a pottery studio was started in Norman, Oklahoma. Grace Lee and John Frank worked together at Frank Potteries producing art pottery.
6 3/8" Diameter, in a creamy white glaze. The red natural clay color highlights the raised design. Great piece.
