The Benjamin Franklin Federal Savings and Loan, based in the Pacific Northwest, commissioned Liberty Blue in 1975 to mark its 50th Anniversary. It was an exclusive series of ironstone tableware made by Enoch Wedgwood & Co in Staffordshire, England. Franklin used it as a promotional line to encourage deposits, offering a free basic place setting if you deposited $50 and subsequent place settings were available at low prices for depositors. The promotion continued until the end of 1976, although in 1977 they offered additionally a special 20 turkey platter free to those who deposited $5,000. This bowl depicts Fraunces Tavern. Excellent condition. One piece has in the printing a thin blue line across the bowl.
