009 - Demitasse Cup

Ming Blue with Blue Overspray
Artist marks of both Fred Wills and Clem Hull

Fred Wills recollects that the summer this pot was thrown,
Clem broke his hand and Van Briggle said he could keep working
through the injury if he could keep busy (this was before Workman's Comp insurance), so Fred threw the cup portion on the wheel, and Clem was able
to use his one good hand to attach the handles. Fred recalls that they produced hundreds of such cups that summer.

Produced at Van Briggle Pottery between 1948 and about 1952.

From the collection of Robert & Diane Hull
