or Fun with Design & Numbers

The Franks were very clever with their designs and corresponding catalog/inventory numbers. Keep an eye on bowl #200 and candle holder #300 in this Frankoma catalog.

Here is a close-up view.

    Kenneth, I like anything you write about Frankoma. My husband was a dealer for many years and sold Frankoma that went all over the world. Most of the posts I see are about the bargains people have gotten. I wish there was something we could do to get articles in magazines to boost the interest and therefore the price of our collections. I remember when that happened to people regarding the green color. We need some “star” to talk about it on television, perhaps one of the talk or cooking shows.

  2. Thanks for your comment. Sorry it has taken me so long to respond. Love your family connection to Frankoma and your promotion ideas. I will pass your message on to Randy McFarlin. Thanks again and Happy New Year! Ken
