Van Briggle Pottery: The Early Years
"The history of the founding of the Van Briggle Pottery against the odds of poor health, insufficient money, and untrained helpers is well known, but only a few intimate friends know how almost overwhelming the struggle was. The Van Briggles were working day and often half the night and the kilns were turning out beautiful pottery."
