Jordan and I have been writing our blog for over a year now, and we realized that I have never shown you my Hall teapot collection.
The teapots were made in Liverpool, Ohio by the Hall China Company that was established in 1903 after the merger of several small companies.
I have around 50 teapots, (I hope Mr. Autumn forgets to read the blog today…He doesn’t know I have that many). They were mostly purchased for me by my mother. She enjoyed finding them, and it gave her a reason to go to antique stores. I finally had to ask her to stop.
I had shelves made especially for them in our pantry……
and put the overflow in our built-in kitchen hutch.
This one started it all. It was a wedding gift to my in-laws who were married 65 years ago. My mother-in-law just gave it to me one day. I did a little research and decided it would be a fun collection.
I don’t really have a favorite.
You know, how none of your kids are your favorites. Well, it’s the same with the teapots…..kinda.
This is a cute little lady with her polka dots and little fat belly.
I actually use them. It’s fun to color code them with the seasons or with the table decor or the cups. For instance, this one gets used in the autumn.
I had an entire set of dishes in this pattern with every. single. accessory and serving dish. (Another project of my mother’s). When we moved, I gave them to Jordan. They are very sweet, the kind you would use when your girl friends come for a spring or summer lunch.
This teapot is the same style as above. Don’t you just love the fancy handle?
This is another one that is good for spring/summer because of its sweet tulips.
How many of those flowers can you identify?
I love this one with its fleur de lys design. The lighting combined with the teapots’ shine made a glare. Sorry.
I have two yellow ones in this style.
One has leaves and acorns.
The other one has flowers.
I love this little cutie.
What an unusual lid…..
and handle. What about you? Do you have any collections? Drop us a comment and let us know.
