Among the earliest and most productive of Chicago’s Arts and Crafts silversmithing concerns, the Kalo Shop was founded in 1900 by Clara P. Barck. Under her management and that of her husband, George S. Welles, Kalo became a school and workshop for aspiring artisans, whose handwrought wares reflected the firm’s motto: "Beautiful, Useful, and Enduring." This paneled pitcher, with its gently rounded base and stylized monogram, "EBB," is one of Kalo’s classic designs.
