OK, I have to admit that I know absolutely nothing about the ceramicist Alexander Franzka except for the one picture and paragraph that appears in Chipman’s Encyclopedia. The picture in the book is of a crazy looking, multicolored tropical fish figurine, completely over the top but fitting right in with the kitschiness of the 1950s. As is the case with hundreds of potters and pottery businesses of California’s past, nearly nothing is known about the extent of their lines and even less about the history of the companies. The only reason I’ve been putting all of these pages up is in the hope that someone who worked with these artists (or was related to them) may see it and be able to provide some further information about them.

Note: We've tried to provide as much info as possible on this pottery maker or artist. For further info, you may want to research the items they have on Ebay listed under this name. We've tried to hand tailor the searches below so they will bring up the most accurate results. If there are no results, it will list general California pottery.
