Product Description
This is one of Franciscanware collectible patterns aptly named Apple with red apples on cream background and scalloped edges. Franciscan was very particular as to what they decided was perfect (the irregulars were all I would purchase in their shop where they sold them as the flaws were very minor. You will also note on an irregular piece they put a fine scratch across the mark on back).

This is an IRREGULAR and only flaws I can find is one tiny green spot under the glaze in bottom you can see in photo, as well as fifth photo shows one tiny round rough spot size of match head and to the right of it a small brown brush mark, but has no, chips, cracks or crazing. Any dark areas are shadows. Franciscanware is hand decorated and oven safe.

This bowl was priced higher than the larger I assume because it has an outward turned edge and a 1/4" foot on the bottom. At a popular replacement store this sells for $40. The hallmark dates this particular piece being manufactured from1953-57.

An estate find where I will be listing many more wonderful pieces, some perfect and some imperfect. A major replacement company also sells the imperfects and has this bowl. Difficult to find serving pieces on other internet sites.

Actual Measurement is 7-3/8" across

Inspiration/Story Behind This Product
Franciscan of California started in 1940-1984 and was located in my hometown of Glendale and hate it is no longer there. I purchased all of my stoneware from them (not this pattern) and usually purchased the irregulars saving a lot of money. Since the company was so particular as to what they sold, the irregulars usually only had a minor flaw or flaws.
