Table of Contents

The early terra cotta, garden wares, tiles, Franciscan line, and Catalina artware produced by the prolific Gladding, McBean and Company from the late 1800s to 1942 are covered and beautifully displayed in this fascinating book.

The Franciscan pottery table and artware line, so named to honor the Franciscan Friars who established Spanish Missions in California, was one of the most successful product lines produced by California's Gladding, McBean and Company. Among the dishes displayed here are their most popular patterns, including El Patio, Coronado, Metropolitan, Apple, and Desert Rose. Also featured are the colorful wares made after the firm acquired the Catalina Island Pottery in 1937.

The history of Gladding, McBean covers its establishment in Lincoln, California, in 1873 to its closure in 1984. Values included.
