Vintage from Paul is pleased to offer these lovely and refreshing Metlox Poppytrails Sculptured Antiqua Round Serving Bowls. Antiqua was manufactured from 1966 to 1986.

The "Metlox" name is a contraction of metallic oxide, established in 1927. The company started out making ceramic outdoor signs.

The California Pottery wasn't made until 1931. In 1946, decorated lines were introduced, and in 1958, the sculpted shapes by Bob Allen and Mel Shaw were brought out.

Antiqua has a creamy ivory body with a classic embossed design of fruit and berries. The plates are marked in black with "Vernonware by Metlox, Made in California"

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.
