After much studying and eye strain I believe that the word above Franciscan is "Interpace" although I don't know if that gets me any closer to identifying but at first glance and search there are older patterns that are specific to the Interpace years...

Thoughts?

I have no idea if the Californian pottery resembles your pot

Cup and saucer made by Franciscan Pottery, England.

Wedgwood bought the company and moved production from Los Angeles to England in 1983: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Franciscan_Ceramics

Your Franciscan pattern is called MIDAS. There are a couple of examples at Replacements.com I have a few large soup/salad bowls in this pattern that I found while thrift shopping. I use them every day!

According to Wikipedia, Franciscan (which started in the United States) was purchased by Wedgwood and moved to England in 1983 ... so, not wholly British!

Oops... I see you already posted that!

No problem, as soon as the Americans buy it back we'll move the thread over to the USA & Canadan pottery forum. Laughter

Franciscan pieces in my collection - 6 side plates and 5 bowls (husband might have broken one!).  I use the bowls every day for my salad.

Franciscan Reflections platter and small plates/saucers (English version.  US version is very different - plain & boring!)
