Up for auction is this set of 8 coasters in the "Apple" pattern by Franciscan China. This pattern was manufactured in the United States from 1940 until it was discontinued in 1984. The pattern was also produced in England from 1985 until 2003 and is currently being manufactured in China. Today, pieces that were made in the United States are considered highly collectible. All the pieces in this set were manufactured in the U.S.A and are marked as such. I have included a photograph of the mark for your viewing. Each of the eight coasters measure 3-3/4" in diameter. If you were to purchase these from a popular online replacement site, you would pay almost $36 APIECE making this lot a value of almost $288.00~ The condition of these coasters is EXCELLENT. All pieces are free of any cracks, chips, flakes or other damage. These have obviously been well cared for and appear to have never been used.
If you collect Franciscan, especially the Apple pattern, this water set would certainly make wonderful addition! I am pleased to be offering this set with the LOW starting price of only $9.99 and like always, NO RESERVE. I am currently listing a matching water pitcher with 8 tumblers in this pattern and will be happy to combine multiple purchases to save on shipping costs! To take advantage of these savings and view my other listings, please ~
