1916 – 1951, Paden City, West Virginia

Paden City’s wares, until 1948, were all hand-made.  Many of the company’s “elegant glass” animals,  which are featured here – were designed by Harry Barth.  Paden City kept a low profile, never advertised, and never marked its glass in any way.  Rising collector interest in Paden City “elegant glass” has resulted in a sharp spike in prices.

Is It New Martinisville? …Viking.? …Paden City?...

or the Barth Art Company?


After resigning in 1940 from his position as General Manager of New Martinsville Glass Company, Harry Barth, an outstanding glass designer, opened Barth Art Company.  As Barth’s designs were completed, they were sent to Paden City Glass Co. for production.  The glassware that was sent back to Barth’s company for finishing work (polishing, grinding and cutting)  was sold under his label.  In 1952 he sold some of his molds to Viking Glass Co.  Several Paden City items for sale here are the highly sought-after Harry Barth designs.  Some were originally attributed to New Martinsville, but were actually produced by Paden City Glass.
