Earlier, I nearly placed this pottery company in the “unknowns” section because I hadn’t been able to find out much about it. It’s not listed in either of the Chipman books. However, I did see a few ebay listings that had pieces marked similar to mine, and to seal the deal, I found the mark listed in Lehner’s Marks book. The mark looked identical to the one on the piece I found. In particular the mark is in script, the “F” is uppercase, the rest is lowercase, including the “z”. I believe the individual responsible for the pottery was a William S. Frazier.

The backstamp on the small planter I found included a copyright symbol, the number 401 and the word “Frazier” in the script above. I almost didn’t get it, but I had a feeling about it so I picked it up. Other items I’ve seen include lazy susans, sculpted floral dishes / candlesticks, covered trinket boxes, vases and other decorative garden items.

The stamps have often included “Frazier Calif” or “Frazier California” or “Wm Frazier California” along with a number. Sometimes there is a copyright symbol, and at least a few instances I’ve seen a date of 1951 along with the name “Briar”, apparently used to describe the line which included sticks that looked like briars. These items seemed to be similar, but with decorative pottery roses and flowers applied after the piece was done. There was also a piece I saw that had an original paper stamp “William S. Frazier Ideas”.

Lehner’s gives a date around 1960 for the listing of the Frazier company, but I haven’t found any other information on when the company operated. Be aware that since Frazier is actually a pretty common name, there are actually several different companies and individuals (past and present) making pottery with variations on this moniker.
