Founded in 1927 in Los Angeles, California by T. C. Prouty and his son, Willis, Metlox Pottery was originally a producer of outdoor ceramic signs. After the death of T.C. in 1931, Willis renamed the company Metlox Pottery ( a combination of "metal" and "oxide," a reference to the glaze pigments), and began producing dinnerware. The first line of pottery produced, "Poppytrail," became well known for its brightly colored glazes derived from locally mined metallic oxides.
Found at the estate sale of a "lake house" that had been in one family for four generations near the Upper Penninsula of Michigan. I could not resist its vivid turquoise blue glaze...
Measurements: 4" high x 7" in diameter
Condition: Very good vintage condition. Tiny chips, ( the size of the head of a pin), along the rim of the bowl but no chips in the pottery itself. Faint scratches in the bottom of the bowl from many years of use.
