SKU 21004002

This is the harder-to-find Franciscan teapot with green trim. Early to mid-1940s USA backstamp.

And rather than the stamped decorator-number that was used in later production, this piece was incised with the artisan's mark prior to glazing and firing. One of several pieces that we acquired at an estate sale, this particular decorator's brushwork is simply the most beautiful that we've ever seen on Franciscan Ware.

Antique/vintage Franciscan DESERT ROSE (USA) Teapot, with Green Band on the lid. On the bottom: Hand-incised signature/markings (see the photos), pontil marks, and backstamp that reads: "Franciscan Ware, Hand Decorated, Made in California, U.S.A."

SPECS: Measures 10.1" handle to spout, 6.1" base to top of finial, weight is 1 lb 9 oz. Excellent condition for a piece of this vintage, just one fleabite on the spout, see the closeup photo.
