Frankoma Swans





These are my only living Frankoma Swans. I used to have a black one also, but he was sitting in the garden window, and some cat decided he needed that space for a nap. Frankie did not survive the fall from the window. I don't know why that black swan was a male, because the rest of my swans are all female. Hmmm.

Frankoma pottery is made in Sapulpa, Oklahoma. It is a red clay base and you can usually see it through the glaze. The older pieces are collectible, I don't know about these guys. I know they miss their brother.

Thank you Kate, I'm still enjoying your swans. Are you about to run out yet? I don't recall that you ever said just how many you have. I like it when a huge collection is spaced out like this over several weeks. Then we get to really appreciate individual items.
