Frankoma Mold Number Index

This index will enable you to identify your Frankoma Pottery if you know the mold number.  Many pieces have the mold number on the base, but older pieces and many newer small pieces have no mold number. Clicking on the mold number will take you to the first entry of a given piece in the Frankoma catalog.  Clicking the links to the right of the date will take you to other photos if they are available on this site.  Numbers followed by an “*” are not Frankoma mold numbers, but numbers assigned by Gary Schaum in his book Frankoma Pottery.  The Frankoma factory reproduced some items for a private dealer in 1996, and these are marked “**”.
