Green drip glaze cookie jar, manufactured by the Hull Pottery Company.

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. 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

This vibrant green cookie jar dates to the 1950s and is sometimes also referred to as a bean pot since it is oven-proof as marked on the bottom.  Measuring approximately 6 1/2" tall x 7 1/2" wide from handle to handle, this mid-century gem could be used for either purpose, or as a soup or stew tureen.

Gloriously green!
