Highly desirable "Atomic" Starburst Franciscan Ware set found at local Newport Beach estate sale.
Dinnerware produced by Gladding, McBean & Company and was marketed under the brand Franciscan in the 1930’s. This popular starburst pattern was part of Franciscan’s “Modern Americana” dinnerware collection and was manufactured between 1954 and 1966. It is often called the “Atomic Starburst” by collectors and has dramatically increased in value the past few years.
This ‘atomic’ pattern is in such high demand it has even been reproduced in both ceramic and plastic.
Other treasures for sale at our recent estate sale in Newport Beach included Cantoni furnishings, Gold jewelry, Ferragamo handbags, closets full of Ralph Lauren, Black Label Donna Karen, Escada, and Michael Kors. Many pieces still with tags! Other treasures included a baby grand piano, Venini art glass, Minotti coffee tables, and a very low mileage Mercedes that is just a few years from becoming a classic.
