METLOX is MADE In the USA....I Love that about METLOX!!!!
What 'DishLover' does not Wish for or Want a Set of PoppyTrail?
Doesn't matter what Pattern....there are 69 from which to choose.
Here are some of my favorites....and the Melox PoppyTrail Website for more.
Wishing Wanting the rest of the pieces of Matilija(WhitePoppy) to make a 4 Place setting. I found 4 dinner plates and 3 saucers thrifting for $8. On the Metlox website I could finish the set for around $60. Guess I'll keep Lookin' and Thriftin'. That'll be my Metlox Challenge for 2011.
The recently acquired White Poppy plates are the insipration for a planned tablescape. I found the vintage tablecloth just this week for $8. It has the same Retro-Look as the plates. Don't you think? I'm enjoying getting into the Retro Look in Dishes!
The Daisy Tea Glasses were a gift from my Sister, and I've been waiting for just the right setting for them to make their Tablescape Debut. The Green Desert dishes were a Thrift find several weeks ago.
And here's my Favorite Find so far in the New Year...yep, already been Thrifin'!
Are these the cutest Individual Salt and Pepper Shakers ever, and do they ever go with the Metlox Plates, the Daisy Glasses and the Vintage Tablecloth?
I have a few more things to find before I put this TableScape together. I'm thinkin'.... Black napkins and Green or Yellow Flatware along with Black Candles and Candelabras.
The California company that eventually developed into Metlox Pottery was actually started around 1920 by the Prouty family who sold their wares as ProutyLine Products. Combining parts of the words “metal” and “oxide,” the substance that gives pottery its vibrant colors, eventually resulted in the Metlox moniker.
