There were several dozen calls and emails from people who knew what last week’s mystery photo was, and several who knew the history behind this beautiful urn, including the winner,who was chosen in a random drawing. Jan Jacques, from  Auburn, wrote:The urn appears to be the same one that is displayed at CMMC in Lewiston.There were 4 of these urns on the old East Wing of CMMC when it was torn down in the early/mid 1970s. One of them is on display at CMMC. Two were auctioned off/sold off and I have the fourth one,which was given to my father (Dana S.Thompson) when the new wing was named after him that was built at that time. It is copper and once shined like a new penny! Jacques was the winner.
