The ceramics produced by Frankoma Pottery, and others in Oklahoma, catch the eye of collectors with a wide variety of interests. Twentieth century souvenirs and utility art pottery, Americana and Native American subjects, and Christmas collectibles are all found in this fascination and colorful book. Beginning with the Frankoma Pottery, the authors present the histories of many Oklahoma firms, including Tamac, Sequoyah, Cherokee, and Winart. They document the clays, glazes and trademarks by which each firm may be identified, and the variety of materials they produced. The ceramics themselves are abundantly illustrated in over 400 color photographs and range from sculptures, masks and limited edition series to vases, planters and dinnerware. Phyllis and Tom Bess are avid collectors of these popular wares from their home state. Now they are pleased to share their collection and their knowledge with their readers.
