Early to mid-1940's 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.
