The Central Glass Company was founded in 1863, in Wheeling, West Virginia, by former workers of Barnes, Hobbs and Company. They produced high end art glass, barware, tableware, colorless and colored handmade glass and much more. Most of the pieces were made in Depression Era colors like green, black, pink, light blue, ruby red and more.
The factory was closed from 1893 – 1895 but reopened again in 1896, when Nathan B. Scott purchased the company and renamed it Central Glass Works.
The Central Glass Company was closed in 1939 due to increased foreign competition and they sold their molds to Imperial Glass Company.
