About Metlox:

The beginning of Metlox Manufacturing Company dates back to 1927 in Manhattan Beach, Ca when Willis and T. C. Prouty became interested in producing the ceramic portion of neon signs. In 1932 they started producing their famed dinnerware products and in 1935 expanded into artware. Metlox opened their Vernonware Division in Vernon, California in 1958 when they bought Vernon Kilns. The company continued to operate until 1989 when all operations ceased. The last of the large Southern California Potteries to fall victim to off-shore competition, increased government regulations and community changes.
