Arthur Grindley and his son, Arthur Grindley, Jr., established the Grindley Artware Manufacturing Co. in Sebring, Ohio, in 1933. The pottery produced novelty items such as banks and figurines, usually in animal form. A fire destroyed the plant in 1947. Although the plant was rebuilt, economic factors prevented the firm from attaining its earlier level of production. The pottery closed its doors in 1952.
