In 1932, Carrie Orr Daum opened D'Or Studios in present-day Barberton, Ohio to produce art objects and wall plaques made of a plaster composition. In 1936, the name of the studio changed to Coventry Ware, Inc., as it was located in Coventry Township. For many years the company was housed in one of the barns on O.C. Barber's Anna Dean Farm. Beginning in 1940, Coventry Ware, Inc. began manufacturing ceramic figurines and art objects in addition to its plaster products. During World War II, the company produced molds for gloves, helmets, and boots for soldiers. Cheaper foreign-made ceramics began to flood the market following World War II, forcing Coventry Ware, Inc. to discontinue their production of ceramics in the 1950s. During the 1960s, Coventry Ware production included a line of plaques made of vinyl. This versatile material was light and virtually unbreakable, and allowed for enhanced designs on the plaques. Coventry Ware, Inc. closed in the mid-1960s.
