Thanks for sharing the Hillhouse site. You'll note that in their
Vernonware section, the example of Vernon's Lei Lani described as
being on the San Marino shape is actually a piece of Hawaii on the
earlier Melinda shape.
They also state in one area that Metlox bought VK in 1942 ... not
true! VK closed in 1955; Metlox officially acquired their assets in
1958, but probably were continuing some of the lines (notably the
plaids) as early as 1955.
