It was located in the Old Colorado Springs Train Roundhouse. Then it moved to a small store on Tejon Street which is no longer there. I think it is gone. This lamp has the famous matte glazed finish that Van Briggle is so famous for. Van Briggle pottery was started by Artus Van Briggle in Colorado Springs, Colorado, after 1901. Van Briggle had been a decorator at Rookwood Pottery of Cincinnati, Ohio. He died in 1904 and his wife took over managing the pottery. The wares usually had modeled relief decorations and a soft, dull glaze. Van Briggle was reorganized in 1910 and renamed the Van Briggle Pottery and Tile Company The name was changed to Van Briggle Art Pottery Company in 1931.
