After World War II, the Pro-Phy-Lac-Tic Brush Company expanded its product line from toothbrushes to items made from plastic resins. In 1955, building on the popularity of Melmac dinnerware (made with shatterproof, lightweight melamine), the company introduced its Prolon brand of dinnerware. This colorful line of dinnerware was designed by Irving Harper of the industrial design firm George Nelson Associates.
