The story of this little known manufacturer of decorated milk glass. Founded by Max Biberthaler, former general manager of New Martinsville Glass Mfg. Co., they used molds acquired fro the Point Marion Glass Novelty Co., Gillinder, Dithridge and other early companies. Many of these molds were acquired by Kemple after Lornita's closing, leading to misatribution of many of Lornita' decorated pieces.
Includes hand painted milk glass vases, plates and lamps.
