This California Provincial’s ewer or pitcher is in good vintage condition with chips along the spout (see pictures) (1956 to 1982). The pitcher measures 7 inches tall and 4.5 inches in diameter. The rest of the pitcher hardly has a mark on it.
If you are interested in additional selections of the California Provincial dinnerware, message me for a discount.
T.C. Prouty was an inventor born in Michigan in 1888. He invented and patented a tachometer used on aircraft during WWI when he was 18 years old. He was also the founder of Proutyline Products Company in 1921 with his son, Willis with purpose of development and marketing of their inventions.
So, in 1927, T.C. and Willis founded Metlox in 1927 (for metallic oxide) located in Manhattan Beach, CA. They produced outdoor ceramic signs. In 1931, T.C died and his son reorganized the Manhattan Beach facility for dinnerware production.
The first limited line of Metlox dinnerware was produced in 1932. It was called California Pottery and was produced in bright colored glazes. Poppytrail was introduced on 1934 and was available in fifteen different colors. The poppy is the state flower of California. Talc and most of the metallic oxides used in the production of the Metlox pottery were mined locally in California.
In 1958 the trade name and some dinnerware molds from Vernon Kilns were purchased by Metlox. Hence the designation, “Vernon Ware.” The pottery factory closed in 1989 after 62 years of operation.

I use the term "very good vintage condition" for pieces that are in excellent condition. Yet please remember that these items have mostly been used before; so they will have a few imperfections. Anything that is obvious will be noted in the description and/or pictures.
When the description uses the term "good vintage" condition; it means that it does have some flaws (and should be noted in the description). Less than perfect, but still in good shape.
We do offer refunds, but the item will have to be returned to us before the refund is completed. We do NOT pay for return shipping. Please, let us know if you have any issues, we will be glad to discuss them with you to determine an outcome.
We will return all messages within a 24 hour period, but we do strive to reply as quick as possible.
Jimmy works really hard to ensure a safe delivery of your package. But we have had damage through the shipper in the past. If you would please send us a picture or two of the damage box and/or its contents. We can file for insurance and will refund the costs of the items.
Vintage means an item is at least 20 years old or at the most 99 years old. Once it is 100 years old, you can call it an antique. Please be aware that you are purchasing a used item. We keep trying to improve our descriptions and pictures to point out chips or dents or other issues a piece may have.
Saying that, there may be small vintage wear that go unnoticed. I do go over the piece when I buy it, wash it, take its picture, write its description or weigh it. Yet still, sometimes I miss it. The right light will show scratches on dinner plates for example. One time, you could see a crack in a piece of pottery in the photograph that you could not see when looking at it.
Thanks for dropping by.
