“The Warwick China Co. produced china 1887 to 1951. Formed by local businessmen J. R. McCortney, O. C. Dewey, C.J. Rawlings, Albert F. Stifel and A.J. Cecil, the company came into being to fill the needs of a growing middle class with affordable chinaware. The first president was J. R. McCourtney, who served until June 1889, when he was succeeded by O. C. Dewey. Following the appointment of Thomas Carr as president and general manager in 1892, the output of the company increased nearly 100 percent, and the number of employees grew from 120 to 260. Charles (C. E.) Jackson, who had introduced Vitrified Translucent China (1911-1935) to the Warwick line, took over as president in 1911. Carr left Warwick China in 1916 to start his own business — the Carr Pottery Company in Grafton, WV. George Bowers became the president of the company in 1934 , introducing the Santone China line, the last of the company's productions. S. H. Hubbard ran the company from 1944-1947 until the company was bought by Harry Bloomberg & Associates in a merger with Sebring China Company to form the Warwick China Corporation. Edward Kren served at the General Manager of the Corporation until the business closed in 1951, drawing the last kiln on October 29, 1951.

Warwick China was noted for the Ioga line (produced between 1893 and 1911) and specialized in brown glazed pieces with portraits of Indians, monks, and fraternal emblems, as well as flow blue china and delft patterns. The company made vases, dinnerware, teapots, coffeepots, pitchers, bowls, and jardinieres, using decals or hand painting skills of their many artists to decorate their wares.”
