Frankoma Prairie Green Square Bowl #30 with “Cat Mark”: Vintage Perfect! This has always been one of our Favorite Items in our Collection. Circa 1936-38 (Phylis and Tom Bess). Beautiful and clean Ada Clay with a perfect “Cat Mark”. This piece just could not be any better! We’ve had it a long, long time on the old Pump Organ and based upon John Frank’s original concept idea of the “Rounded Square”, this is a perfect example. Perfectly proportioned with lots of Green/Gold, which is what attracted us to this piece in the beginning. You’ll love this piece! Final Note: This is the “Original Complete Cat” Mark, not the first, not the “Broken”. All 3 were lead and melted in the Fire! From our many years spending time in Arizona the Jaguar was a frequent visitor. Likewise, in the Old Days to Oklahoma. From the size of the head and the musculature, this “Puma” really appears to be the Jaguar, a frequent visitor from Mexico due South and probably resident. I’ve seen Jaguars. I have Mountain Lions here on the Farm and Ranch in North Dakota. Lions are leaner and slighter and the Jaguar is actually larger. I’ll wager that this “Puma” (a generic name for “Cat” back then) was modeled on the Jaguar, but then I’m an English Prof, not a Biologist! Also, this is the most complete mark I’ve seen of the Pottery Pot behind the Cat and the Moon. And that “halo” over the moon is actually the TOP OF THE POT AND RIM! The full rounded left side is shown here and also the base. After the Fire, this lead stamp melted and was remade without the Pot, hence they knocked off the bottom of the Pot and also the rounded sides. This new creation became the “Cat” most people know! You’ll see that I’m right about the Pot, and the Jaguar versus Mountain Lion? Well, I’m an English Professor, not a Biologist. Let’s just call it a “Cat Mark”!
