A lending institution has ordered the near complete sell out of the Frankoma Pottery factory, including equipment, showroom fixtures and inventory. According to Robert Hawks Auction Co. of Oklahoma City, the May 18 auction will features more than a thousand pieces sold in large dealer-size lots.
Frankoma Pottery was founded in 1933 by John Frank. It’s based in Sapulpa, Okla., and made its name in dinnerware and Mid-Century Modern sculptures. The sale is the latest affecting the company’s health: Frankoma changed hands in 1991, 2005 and 2008. For a complete auction of the fixtures and pottery included in the May 18 sale, visit Robert Hawks Auction Co.’s website.
Factoid: The name ‘Frankoma’ was created from Frank’s last name and the last three letters of the state of Oklahoma.
