People of Lanark County — Mrs. Charlie Rintoul

Mrs. Rintoul once was known as an employee of  a Carleton Place grocery store until an injury sidelined her and confined her to bed for a few months. Not one to be idle and always interested in pottery she decided to  work on a moulding process on a pottery resembling light china.

After that she never looked back and her problem now became trying to fill orders pouring in from wholesalers. Catering to only jewellery shops and department stores Mrs. Rintoul specialized in costume jewellery earrings and brooches.

In 1946 she was considered one of the top ceramic jewellery designers in the area as experts since there was nothing like it in the field.

So now I am looking to add to this story. Does anyone remember her? Does anyone have some of her jewellery?



Thursday, March 9th, 1961  —We are very sorry to learn of the passing of Mrs. Charles Rintoul, Carleton Place and extend our sincerest sympathy to her husband and parents.
