… the company expanded into dinnerware and began in 1932 to produce the “200 Series” line of dinnerware. This line was also called “Poppytrail.” The company garnered a great deal of positive response due to offering this dinnerware line. __replacements.com
The first line of pottery produced, “Poppytrail,” became well known for its brightly colored glazes derived from locally mined metallic oxides. Subsequent lines included “Nostalgia,” “Red Rooster,” “California Provincial,” “Colonial Homestead,” “Homestead Provincial,” and “Colorstax.”
In the 1950s Metlox introduced a line of modernist dinnerware featuring free form designs and squared plates using “blanks” that were then decorated with designs and colors. These were then marketed under the pattern names of “California Contempra”, “California Modern” and “California Freeform” names.
The company operated from 1927 until 1989.
