Hagen Renaker Archive Pieces

In January 2010 I went on a tour of the Hagen Renaker factory and some of the factory Archives. It was a wonderful experience and it was very educational. Sue Nikas was the perfect hostess. These are pieces of Hagen Renaker history and some tets pieces. Many of them are very unusual and some have never been seen before. I'm sorry for the quality of the pictures. I only had one chance to take these pictures. At home, I take them repeatedly until I find one I like
