Hall China

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?

    Oh I am so addicted to bao lalety, it’s terrible! These ones had spinach, nori, and shiitake mushroom centers, but our favorites lalety have been with cabbage, carrot, mushroom, bean noodle, black pepper and soy protein. SO GOOD.

  2. Yeah that’s what I’m talking about baby–nice work!

  3. Hey, that’s the greatest! So with ll this brain power AWHFY?

  4. Why would you say Chapo was cutting/processing his drugs? That's always been the case man, since Mex. DTO's began as the dominant trade. I always assume it's like this: Columbian product is about 95-98, DTO processes it to 90 or so, the guys handling it in the border towns, Tijuana/Reynosa hit it another time, and it crosses into the US about 80-85.

  5. It was fabulous! I love getting together with you ladies, and so enjoyed the fellowship, worship, and encouragement. Such a blessing. Always wish I could visit with everyone more. Can't wait for next year, either!! Maybe we'll have to plan some more things to do together, so we don't have to wait so long in between visits. I know how busy life is, though…
