Charles Klinger was born in Manchester, Ohio. According to Rookwood Pottery records, he decorated only in 1925, but almost identical artists marks have been found on pieces as early as 1916. The styles do appear similar, so it is possible he spent a short time ten years earlier doing work. His work appears to have been completely done in vellum Glazes. Collector interest in his pieces is considered to be below average.
