The Franciscan Pottery line was launched in 1934 by the Glendale, California pottery company known as Gladding-McBean. The name was changed to Franciscan Ware and in 1954 they released the popular pattern known as Starburst, one of three Modern Americana patterns that were printed on the Eclipse line of china dinnerware. This pattern, created in the mid-century modern aesthetic, was part of the Modern Americana marketing promotion. A far cry from the large flowers, bold colors, and soft pastels that had made up some of the 1940s offerings, the Starburst pattern, also called Atomic Starburst line. This has become a collectors item. You can look on ebay to see how much each piece is selling for.
