  • Pattern: C3 in Autumn Yellow
  • Made in Sapulpa, OK,  USA
  • Vintage: 1975 - 1990
  • Details:  These are some really neat looking mugs.  We've seen them described as Lazy Bones and Barrel Plainsmen but after reviewing the actual Frankoma catalogs, we find these mugs were not part of either set, they are simply style C3 and were released in many different colors through the years.  The color Autumn Yellow was introduced in 1975 and was so popular it was used until 1990.  These mugs are highly collectible, many collect them in every color made, others collect by color or sets.  If you're collecting these mugs, we hope these two bring you closer to your goal.  Otherwise they make a great gift for a Frankoma collector, a Boho/Retro style lover or a perfect cup for your morning coffee.

Frankoma Pottery was founded by John Frank in Norman, Oklahoma.  In 1938 Frank moved the company to Sapulpa, Oklahoma where it remained until its closing. The company is widely known for its sculptures and dinnerware although the company made many other products including figurines, trivets, and vases. John Frank operated the pottery with his wife Grace Lee until his death in 1973, then their daughter ran the company. The factory was rebuilt in 1984 after a September 1983 fire destroyed most of the facility. Due to inflation and competition from abroad, the company filed for bankruptcy in 1990, eventually selling to Richard Bernstein in 1991.  Richard resold the business in 2005 to Det Merryman.  In 2008 the company was re-opened by a new owner Joe Ragosta, unfortunately Joe was not able to sustain it either and closed the company in 2010.  If you collect Frankoma pottery be aware that the original Frankoma molds and trademark name were sold to FPC LLC. As of April 2020, pottery continues to be made but in lower volume, focused on artware.
