Frankoma Pottery was founded by John Frank in 1933, in Norman Oklahoma. The name is a mix of his last name and the last few letters of Oklahoma. The Frankoma Company made all their pottery using local clay.
This piece is part of the Mayan-Aztec line introduced in 1947. The holder is in excellent condition. Measurements are 7 1/2 inches long, 5 inches tall and 2 inches wide. The depth of the holder is 2 inches. It is signed on the bottom Frankoma 264.
The Frankoma Pottery plant experienced two fires. (In 1938 and 1983) Both times, the company was rebuilt. However, the pottery company eventually closed in 1991. The original molds are still kept within the family.
