Set made in California in a vibrant Turquoise or Aqua color. No. 23 is stamped on it. Franciscan ware china is highly collectible. This is known as the Swirl pattern. This color isn't commonly found. It's also hard to find pieces with the sugar bowl having an intact lid. This is a really sweet set. I just love the color of turquoise, and I can't seem to pass up a piece with this color! In great vintage condition. There are no cracks, chips, or crazing. Set is in pristine condition. This pottery was made in 1936 to 1954. A really gorgeous set in aqua matte finish. There is a slight mark on the inside lid but, it looks to me like a glazing imperfection...sort of like where the 3 dots are and the glaze is a bit missing.
