Jess is away on a much deserved vacation this week, so I’m popping in my own tidbits for our regular Thursday Tea Time. I’ve got my own tiny collection (2) of tea pots that sit in my kitchen and I love.
I love their color. Light yellow and bright red.
Also, they are Hall China. Two years ago I went to an Estate sale and bought the yellow one for 3 bucks. I love it. It needed a really good cleaning with some vinegar. My lovely little red teapot (a newer Hall piece), I got at Thistle on my visit to Kansas City. It’s so cheery and I love the geometric shape.
I don’t know much about The Hall China Company. I know they make quality pieces and the company started in the early 1900s. It’s still around today. Here’s a great collector’s site that might be able to help you date pieces.
It’s clear to me that my yellow one is much older. The mark stamp is not the same as the more modern pieces, but I still can’t seem to find a definite date. Any ideas?
Here’s the bottom of the red one.
Definitely a new Hall piece because of the shape around the logo.
Do you have any other tidbits about Hall China? Do you collect them yourself?
