Hull Pottery began production in 1905 in Crooksville, OH under the leadership of Addis Emmet (A.E.) Hull. The company’s early lines consisted of common utilitarian stoneware, semi-porcelain dinnerware and decorative tile. The company quickly established a firm market and enjoyed an excellent reputation for producing quality ceramics.

In the 1920s, Hull began experimenting with a line of art pottery and also began using a wider variety of colors and glazing techniques. By the late 1930s through the 1950s, Hull was producing a variety of lines. One of the most popular lines was Little Red Riding Hood. The line included cookie jars, canisters, sugar bowls and creamers. The art pottery lines with matte pastel finishes continued to develop primarily along floral themes: Orchid, Magnolia, Calla Lilly, Open Rose, Irish, and Tulip, to name just a few.

Hull’s product lines expanded to include piggy banks, liquor bottles, and kitchenware. The company’s Floristware line was one of its most successful. From the 1940s through the 1960s, a plant or flower bouquet delivered from a florist was often contained in a Hull pot or figural planter. Through the 1950s and 1960s the company continued to expand and diversify its product lines to coincide with the times. (background information courtesy of the Hull Pottery Association at

Measuring approximately 8" x 5 3/4" this extraordinary example is the epitome of Hull's mid-century design.  The colors are elegantly evocative of the era, especially the pink, and instantly convey a sense of time and place.

Marked "W 13-7 1/2 Hull U.S.A." on the reverse to indicate that this piece was part of Hull's Woodland pattern line.  Produced in a matte finish prior to the company's 1950 fire, this style was glazed with a glossy finish in the 1950s.
