Warwick China Co. in Wheeling

The Warwick China Co. produced china 1887 to 1951. The company was noted for the Ioga line and specialized in brown glazed pieces with portraits of Indians, monks, and fraternal emblems. It also made other types of tableware and vases along with semi-porcelain pieces.  

The Warwick China Co. factory was located in Center Wheeling at 2140 Water Street, corner of Alley 18. The Warwick China factory site was purchased by the City of Wheeling in October 2002 with Community Development Block Grant funds for $183,000. Engineering studies determined the 50,000 square foot building was not structurally sound and the factory was demolished in 2004.
