About Kanawha Glass: Former employees of the Dunbar Glass Co. formed the Kanawha Glass Company in 1955 after Dunbar closed in 1953. The new company was located in West Virginia and named after the Kanawha River.
Kanawha competed with Blenko, Rainbow, Pilgrim, Viking and other popular mid-20th century glass makers producing colorful stylized retro mod forms. Kanawha was purchased by another glass company in 1987 and closed its doors forever in 1989.
