Set of 8 vintage Franciscan Apple saucers with the beautiful cream body and charming sculptural apple decoration in mellow red, green, and brown glaze colors that have made this pattern beloved since its introduction in 1940. Various backstamps: 7 from 1940-62, 1 from 1979-84. All made in USA. Nice chance to fill out a collection and stow away backups.

5.75" DIA
