Mid-Century Hall China Pattern Modern-Shaped Sugar Bowl with Lid
This collectible china SUGAR BOWL WITH LID by Hall China Company in the Tulip pattern stands 4 ½” high with the lid, and 5 ½” wide, handle to handle. Not including the lid or handles, the bowl measures about 3 ⅛" high by 3 ⅛" wide. The decal features budding tulips in lavender and pinks on an ivory glazed body with platinum trim.
Hall China Company started in East Liverpool, Ohio, in 1903, initially making utilitarian wares like jugs and mugs. When its founder's son, Robert Taggert Hall developed a single fire process for a durable, nonporous china that did not craze, based on a lost process from the Ming Dynasty, Hall entered into the business of producing dinnerware, kitchenware and teapots.
Like many pottery companies at the time, Hall produced premiums for grocery stores, food and spice manufacturers, gas stations and mom and pop stores. The Tulip pattern was used as a premium for Cook Coffee Company. Cook also contracted with Harker Pottery for the pattern, but the Hall Tulip dinnerware seems to be more difficult to find.
Hall China used several brand marks at the time depending on the pottery line. The mark on the bottom of the sugar bowl uses only the words SUPERIOR HALL QUALITY DINNERWARE, which Hall reserved exclusively for its dinnerware.
Great condition and free from chips and cracks. There is some discoloration and browning on the bottom ridge of the base--possibly this could be moved using peroxide soak.
