Charles (Carl) Schmidt (1875-1959)

Charles Schmidt was born in 1875 in Germany and apparently changed his given name to Carl shortly after joining Rookwood in 1896. He is noted for his fine scenic landscape and marine decorations under vellum glaze. He left Rookwood in 1927 to join R. F. Johnston Paint Co., and later worked for the The Cincinnati Times Star.

Carl Schmidt decorated for Rookwood from 1896 to 1927. His mark was CS in a circle.
