FRANCISCAN EL PATIO | Orange Ball Pitcher + Serving Bowl
Simple, beautiful and full of history. This set from 1939, is an example of Californian pottery at its finest! The gorgeous ball pitcher, with it's distinctive shape, can be used alone or with the under bowl (which prevents any condensation from hitting the table). The bowl can also be used seperately as a nice, deep serving dish. The Flame Orange colour seen here was only run from the years 1934-1942 and the unique undermarking of RK (Run of Kiln) was only used in 1939, helping to date these pieces.
A wonderful addition for pottery collectors or admirers alike. Also makes a beautiful gift for a housewarming, birthday, engagement or wedding!
