- Pattern: Heather Rose (Discontinued)
- Made in: East Liverpool, OH, USA
- Vintage: 1940's - 1955
- Details: A very graceful, elegantly designed ceramic pitcher from Hall's Superior Quality Kitchenware. It shows a bouquet of pink roses with green leaves and tiny white flowers all around, design is on both sides. The pitcher is not smooth, is has some very nice lines or "waves/ridges" on both the front and back sides. The handle also has a nice pattern. There are gold accents on the rim as well as the handle. It has a very nice high gloss glaze. Hall had a secret single fire process for making their ceramics and in some of their advertisement they would claim: "Lasting beauty... won't stain, ovenware guaranteed for 2 years against cracking or crazing due to heat or cold". Obviously those two years have long passed but most of their wares have resisted crazing. Beautiful to use as tableware, we could see this on a breakfast table for serving milk or juice, or would also make a great vase for flowers or kitchen decor.

Hall China was founded on August 14, 1903, by Robert Hall, in East Liverpool, Ohio. He began making toilet seats, chamber pots, and pitchers. Unfortunately Robert Hall died only a year after starting the company. He left behind a wife and 8 children, one of which, Robert Taggart Hall, took over the company. He started experimenting with a new single-fire process, just like the Chinese had used during the Ming Dynasty. Finally in 1911 they came up with a glaze recipe that worked. The new process fused together the white body, color and glaze when it was fired at a temperature of 2,400 degrees Fahrenheit. This quickly expanded the company and the variety of products and colors available. After WWI they purchased the Goodwin Pottery Company plant and began making decorated teapots. In the 1920's they formed a relationship with Jewel Tea Company for exclusive designs that lasted until 1980. Hall China became the largest producer of these products in the world. Hall China celebrated its 100th birthday in 2003. In 2010 Homer Laughlin China Company purchased the company. Hall continues to be a prominent supplier of commercial restaurant dinnerware, cooking china, teapots, tableware and coffee makers. A little known fact is that this Heather Rose pattern was made exclusively for Sears.
