You are offerding on TWO Franciscan Starburst Snack Trays. Alternately called the snack tray, snack plate, or TV tray, this Franciscan Starburst shape is about 12 inches long and has an indention on one end in which a cup can rest. According to the line drawing in their catalog, the company item number for this piece was 1817.This popular pattern was produced by Gladding McBean in California beginning in the mid-50's. With the prosperity that came after the war, consumers were ready for something new. And the futuristic starry design on Franciscan Starburst fit in well with a new chrome kitchen and advanced appliances. Introduced in 1954, Starburst is a smooth, decal-pattern design, as opposed to a raised, hand-painted one. Some sources state that the Starburst pattern was only produced from 1954-1957. However, information on the company in the 50's is sketchy and hard to come by, so I'm not sure this is completely accurate. I believe I've seen, from other sources, mention of Starburst pieces being produced through the early 60's. Much of the confusion could stem from the change of ownership and management that was to come in the early 60's. These two pieces are in excellent, like-new condition. No cracks or chips, no crackling. Please contact me about other Franciscan pieces I have for sale.
