Vontury, Inc. was founded by Francis J. von Tury in 1939. He was a leading ceramics engineer, who worked as an advisor for ceramics companies throughout North America and Europe. Some of his developments for these companies (I suspect) filtered back to his own enterprise, as his advances included glaze for porcelain and a one-fire process for vitreous china.
