Charles Schneider was born near Paris, France in 1881. He was originally a freelance designer for Daum from 1901 to 1911. In 1913, Charles and his brother Ernest officially opened their own glass works called Schneider Freres & Wolf, which closed during part of the war and reopened as “Societe Anonyme des Verreries Schneider in 1917. In 1925, theirs was the leading glass company in France, and subsequently received the “Legion of Honor Medal” at the 1925 International Exhibition, the highest award for the Arts in France. The factory closed in 1937. From 1950 to 1981 Charles and his son founded another glassworks called Cristalleries Schneider.
