Brunialti, American Costume Jewelry - Art and Industry (2008) Vol 1, p. 91, extract from an interview with chief Coro designer Adolph Katz, in American Magazine, Feb 1948: "Katz is... no mere photographic artist. 'Let's say I'm having lunch', he says. 'I find myself next to a coffeepot. I'm staring at it. I suddenly decide that what we need more than anything else in the line is a coffeepot. But do I just make a common, ordinary model of a coffeepot? Not on your life. I glamorize that old coffeepot, and it may make us $1,000,000.' "
