Artist or Maker
Anna Schufer
Manufacturer Notes
Anna Schufer is referred to as "Mrs. P. Schufer" in the Museum's records. The 1921 census indicates her name was Anna. BC Archives search shows a marriage between an Annie Look and a Peter Schufer in 1901 in Vancouver, so it is possible her name was Annie.
