Inspired by the Mobile Museum of Art’s growing collection of contemporary ceramics and glass, decorative art collectors Charles G. Schoenknecht and Ward A. Paul committed to make a substantial gift from their collection of 19th and 20th century American and European glass and ceramics, including metalwork, assembled over the last 40 years.
