FRANCISCAN DESERT ROSE PICTURE FRAME

This picture frame is approximately 6" high x 4-5/8" wide--the actual space for the picture is approx. 3-1/2" x 2-1/4".

Franciscan Desert Rose (1941) is one of the few patterns that has remained in continuous production to this day, and has become the most sold American dinnerware of all time. It's claim to fame was enhanced when in 1961 Jacqueline Kennedy ordered this pattern to be used on Air Force One, and it was the selection in 1969 by Richard Nixon for service aboard the Presidential yacht (these were specially made).

In 1979 Josiah Wedgwood & Sons, LTD of England acquired Franciscan from INTERPACE, and renamed the company Franciscan Ceramics, Inc. American production of Franciscan Ware ceased in 1984, following the announcement to relocate all Franciscan production to England. In the year 2000 "Johnson Brothers/Franciscan, a member of the Wedgwood Group" began marketing the Franciscan china in the U.S. from production facilities around the world.

Although the pieces I am selling do show normal wear, there are no chips or dings. You may return the item if you are not totally please with it, but please do pack tightly in several layers of bubble wrap, and insure the piece for the price you paid plus the shipping cost.
