009 - Demitasse Cup
Artist marks of both Fred Wills and Clem Hull
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.
