When California-based Franciscan tableware premiered in 1934, it was practically an overnight success. The glamour of the emerging film industry and the state's climate seemed exotic to Midwesterners and those living on the East Coast. The "Golden State" became a very popular tourist destination. And Franciscan's bright-colored, less expensive "earthenware" grew in popularity as American consumers began to recover from the Great Depression. Ivy was one of four patterns in the company's now legendary line of hand-painted, raised-pattern designs that included Desert Rose, Fresh Fruit, and Apple. Ivy was even featured on the sets of the "I Love Lucy" show with Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz, and the "Donna Reed Show," which ran on broadcast TV from 1958 to 1966.
