Footnotes

  • The Kalo Shop was founded in 1900 in Chicago by 32-year old Clara P. Barck.

    The Kalo Shop produced handwrought flatware, hollow ware and jewellery, and trained or worked with noted Chicago metalsmiths such as Julius Randahl, Grant Wood, Esther Meacham, Matthias Hanck, Falick Novick, Heinrich Eicher, and Emery Todd.

    Welles was unusual for many reasons. While most other silversmiths of the period ran smaller boutique stores, Welles knew from the start that she wanted a large commercial operation. At one point she employed over 25 silversmiths. She hired women whom she called the "Kalo Girls" to design most of the items, and Scandinavian immigrants to fabricate them, at a time when both of these groups were shunned by many businesses.
