East Liverpool, Ohio was a community where pottery and glass manufacturers abounded, including Knowles, Cameo, Harker, Homer Laughlin and many others. One name that stands out from the bunch among vintage pottery collectors however is The Hall China Company.
In 1903 Robert Hall opened a The Hall China Company and it was later run and operated by his son Robert Taggart Hall who went back to the basics and began manufacturing using the single fire process that had been used centuries before by the Chinese. The single fire process was preferable to Hall because it allowed the glaze to adhere and melt into the body of the pottery. This in turn produced pottery that was not only strong, but it also did not craze and more importantly, it was lead free.
Another important achievement for this company was the fact that they were able to produce beautiful pottery with luminous and bright colors. This is especially evident in the collectible teapots and pitchers that they produce. One collectible that has been produced for about 60 years, from the 1920’s to the 1980’s, was their very popular Jewel Tea line. This came about when The Jewel Tea Company gave Hall teapots away as promotional gifts. The program was later expanded by both companies to include many other dinnerware items.
The town of Liverpool, Ohio, has seen many of the old pottery, china and glass companies come and go, but one has been constant since 1903 and that has been The Hall China Company. Over 100 years later they are still producing top of the line products and collectors are still clamoring to pick up pieces for their collections.
