The T.C. Wheaton Company was created in 1888 by Dr. Theodore Wheaton. Initially Wheaton produced glassware for the medical and science fields, then in 1946 Wheaton Glass was formed. All serum bottles used by the U.S. government in World War II were exclusively produced under this name. It wasn't until 1967 that Wheaton Glass began manufacturing the commemorative glass pieces that are collectibles as of 2015.Learn more about Antiques
