Vernonware - Dinnerware

See also: Vernonware Housewares, Vernonware Kitchenware, Vernonware Barware

Vernonware began with Poxon China in 1916, located in Vernon, California. Later, in 1928, it became Vernon Potteries or Vernon Kilns. The company was bought out by Metlox in 1958 and became a division of Metlox. I have pieces from 65 different patterns including some of the hard-to-find patterns such as Winchester 73 and the souveneir specialty plates of various landmarks, California missions, cities and states.
