A Vintage Hall Teapot

I visited a local antique/junk mall Monday and found this vintage 6-cup Hall teapot for only $7.50. 
Hall China was founded in 1903 in East Liverpool, Ohio and began producing their gold decorated teapot line in the 1920s. 
This teapot is a Boston teapot trimmed in gold. 
Read about Hall Teapots here
This teapot shows obvious wear on the gold trim, especially on the thumb rest on the handle. 

Oh, how I wonder how many pots of tea have been served through the years in this special teapot?

We love the old Halls---Caro has about a dozen of the Hall Green ones on a little shelf around her kitchen ceiling.

And I enjoyed the link, as well---I found four that we have in our collection, and never knew the name of our "Windshield" pot. I've thought of it as "Triceratops" all these years.

Love it! And what a *great* price -- I would have scooped this up as well! (I also love that you are imagining the past life of this lovely teapot!)

No kidding, a Hall teapot. We've been to their outlet when we've gone to the Fiesta Ware outlet. I have a lot of teapots but not one of theirs. I'm over to visit you from Patsy's....wishing you a nice day!
