Very Rare – Franciscan (and Gladding McBean) “Sandalwood” Pattern 32-Piece Dinnerware Set from the 1960's in Excellent Condition (USA Made).

Ad copy from an old advertisement for this pattern reads: "You've never seen china so beautiful--you've never seen china so durable--as Encanto in Franciscan fine china. Superb craftsmanship--achieved by no other potters--fuses Franciscan's strong, pearl-toned, china-body with china of subtle nature colors, then encircles them with gleaming platinum, Encanto is a luxury to own! It sturdily resists the hazards of use and will be your delight and pride--morning, noon, and night through years to come".

The SANDALWOOD pattern, created by Franciscan fine China and Gladding McBean and Co. of Glendale, CA. USA, was part of the Encanto Masterpiece Fine China Collection made between 1953-1965.

Sandalwood is a dreamy pattern with graceful curves that’s loaded with cozy, California charm!

A mid-century modern set in a brownish-pink pearl toned color (looks like light cocoa to me), whose cups showcase gleaming cream-colored centers, all with a high gloss finish throughout and polished platinum rims/handles. The bases have the signature back stamp that reads: Franciscan Fine China; GLADDING McBEAN and CO., SANDALWOOD, Made in California U.S.A.

This complete service for 6 includes:
6 - 10 ½” Dinner Plates.
6 - 8” Salad / Luncheon Plates.
6 – 6 ¼” Bread & Butter / Dessert Plates.
6 - Flat Demitasse Cups (measures 5" W x 4" Rim x 1 5/8" H).
6 – 6” Cup Saucers.
Sugar Bowl with Lid and Platinum Handles.

Platinum trim is not safe for use in the microwave.

Hand wash only.

Note (pictures/condition) – excellent overall condition, especially considering their age, with no real issues to note though 1 of the cups has a couple of small dark spots on the base. The platinum rims are a bit dull and would really sparkle if cleaned or polished.

Comes from a smoke / pet free home.
