Other: An earlier researcher, Lois Crouch, recorded in her notes that she believes these copper-clad and bronze-clad pieces were made with the assistance of an accomplished potter traveling through Colorado- and the name of Clewell was mentioned. We have no method of proof for that attribution; however, all the copper-clad & bronze-clad pieces to date, have been designs attributed to the year 1907. These records of original designs between 1900-1912 were ones kept by Anne Gregory Van Briggle.
