Franciscan, whose origins trace back to the early 1900s, was originally a US pottery manufacturing wares at the Glendale plant of Gladden-McBean & Company. The business went through many changes in ownership before Franciscan Ceramics was sold to Josiah Wedgwood & Sons Ltd in 1979. Operations were moved the Wedgwood's Stoke-on-Trent plant in the UK in 1984. However, as with many modern potteries, pieces today are manufactured from various locations around the world.
