Hall Plume Teapot

I bought this Hall “Plume” teapot while on my trip to Berea Kentucky with the Traveling Tea Friends.  It is a six sided pot, with pale pink glaze, designed by Disraeli.


During the 1940’s the Hall China Company decided to issue a series of six Victorian style teapots. The series was not well received and was discontinued a few years later.


This is quite a heavy little four cup pot.  I think the six sided shape and plumes are unusual and pretty.  This is the first pale pink teapot to be added to my collection. 


There is another pot in my collection from a trip to Kentucky for the Paducah Quilt Show in 2000.  It is a Homer Laughlin teapot in the Skytone pattern.


Now I’ll be on the lookout for the other Hall teapots from the Victorian series – the Murphy, Benjamin, Bowknot, Birch and Connie (all in lovely pastel colors).  ☺

I love seeing both teapots, very pretty. I am loving colored teapots these day, so they really are attractive to me. Love Homer Laughlin too and Hall.

I collect Hall teapots, and I have two of the pots from this collection. I love all my Hall "pots", but these in particular have such charm!
