May 19, 1908 – 110 years ago!

The Colorado Springs Gazette stated,

“The first kiln of the Van Briggle Pottery was drawn & reported very successful.  More than 600 pieces were in the first kiln.”     Page 143, Van Briggle Notes & More

The kilns at the 1908 Memorial Pottery were in use from May 19, 1908; however, the official Dedication of the Memorial Pottery was not until Dec. 3, 1908.

How many collectors would love to have been there, and buying as the pieces came from the kiln?
