WILHELM SCHMIDT

Schmidt (1845-1938) was a 19th century German gemstone engraver, who specialised in the difficult technique of cutting and carving opal.

Schmidt was a master of this art form, and began his training at the age of 15 in Paris under the tutelage of the cameo-cutter, Arsène. Later on, he set up his own engraving workshop in Hatton Garden, London from where he cut some of the most exquisite cameos featured in jewellery created by John Brogden, Child & Child and Guiliano but to name a few. Schmidt never signed his work and the cameos he produced were never credited to him.
