HEN ON NEST CASSEROLE Hull Pottery House 'n Garden Mirror Brown 'Drip' 8⅜" Wide Late 1960s to 1986
Hull Pottery Company debuted its popular House 'n Garden line in 1960 when it changed its focus to casual dinnerware. Originally, the line was produced only in Mirror Brown, often referred to as brown drip. Later, tangerine, green agate, butterscotch were added.
Hull offered its House 'n Garden HEN ON NEST CASSEROLE (#592) in the popular Mirror Brown as part of its Serving Ware collection. It was advertised to "bake and serve" in the same dish.
The Cover of the 2-quart HEN ON NEST CASSEROLE is in the shape of a nesting chicken and the Casserole Dish with an ivory foam rim is designed to look like the basket-weave detailed nest. The entire set measures 8 ⅜" wide. The high gloss finish is a deep chestnut brown.
Both pieces are in excellent condition with no chips, cracks or crazing. There is a small glaze crawling flaw inside the Cover with missing glaze. The flaw does not affect the piece and cannot be seen when display.
Stamped on the bottom of the Server is Hull’s House and Garden Bake and Serve trademark, the words Oven Proof above Bake and Serve In This Dish. The lower case “hull” with a copyright symbol and the words, Oven Proof U.S.A is on the bottom line.
The set would pair well with mid-century modern, farmhouse or traditional décor--and its fun retro design would be great mixed in eclectic approach to decorating.
About Hull Pottery Company: The company began production in 1905 in Crooksville, Ohio, under the leadership of Addis Emmet (A.E.) Hull. Its early lines consisted of common utilitarian stoneware, semi-porcelain dinnerware and decorative tile. During the 1920s. Hull expanded its product line to include art pottery. By the late 1930s through 1950s, Hull produced some of its best work, including the "Red Riding Hood" line. By the 1960s, production moved from artistic lines to predominately "House and Garden" serving ware and Imperial florist ware. Hull ceased operations in March 1986 due to multiple union strikes and increased foreign competition.
