A brief history
Gladding, McBean & Co. was founded in 1875 to produce sewer tile for the
American West; however, fame began with production of Franciscan dinnerware in
1934 at their plant in Glendale, California. Bright
colors were used in the design of earthenware pieces in the style of the
American Southwest which also reflected the simple and informal style of
Mexican folk pottery. Gladding McBean was instrumental in creating the California
Style of American ceramics, adopting Spanish names for their lines such
as Coronado and Montecito. In the 1930's they introduced new patterns
which used a raised relief technique in the ceramic production and were
hand painted. Fine china was produced during World War II. The
Masterpiece China label
appeared in the late 1950s. Masterpiece China was
purchased in 1961 by Jacqueline Kennedy for Air Force One and in 1960 by
Richard Nixon for the Presidential yacht.
All U.S. production
ceased in 1984
following a series of mergers including their 1979 sale
to Wedgwood of England.
All patterns are wonderful replacement or collectible pieces,
including cups, saucers, mugs, platters,
plates, bowls, pitchers, creamers, sugars, lids,
