Hall China Co.’s Manufacturing Process
On August 14, 1903, Robert Hall founded The Hall China Company, East Liverpool, Ohio. The company stared with institutional products for hospitals such as combinets, bedpans, mugs and jugs and in 1908 added dinnerware to the line.
Robert Taggart Hall, the son, took over the business after his father’s death. He immediately put all of his efforts into a new, single fire development process. The basis of the technique actually developed during the Ming Dynasty in the mid-16th century but Hall’s process used contemporary equipment.
The advantage of single firing allowed a fusion of the basic material, the color and glaze all fired at a temperature of 2,400 degrees Fahrenheit. The result was a strong product that resisted crazing and was non porous.
Another added bonus (as we know it today) is the lead free quality of the china. Because lead could not be processed at the high temperatures, the element was excluded from all of the kitchenware. An early environmentally correct process developed unintentionally. source
Hall Autumn Leaf Pottery Pattern
Jewel Tea Company
The directors of Hall China made a decision to associate with the Jewel Tea Company in the mid-1920’s. Hall produced an exclusive line of dinnerware for them. Jewel started using Hall teapots as premiums, and new pieces were introduced by Hall China for Jewel until 1980.

Hello Lorraine, thank you for this informative post! I inherited a bowl in this pattern from my grandmother when she passed away, she used it for every thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Years meal. Years later I was browsing an antique shop and saw some custard cups and bought those to add to my collection. And that teapot…I must find one now!! It is gorgeous
Sheri Farr says
I love this set. I have several items myself. I wish I could find the drinking glasses and salt and pepper shakers. I use them all in the fall of the year. It is beautiful and my family feels extra special when we use it for our get togethers.
The Autumn Leaf set is lovely and just right for the fall season. I did a quick search on eBay and found both the glasses and salt and pepper sets. You might be able to find just what you are looking for.
Thank you for stopping by!
I have the teapot and a few small pieces from a Great Aunt….you have quite a large collection!
Maple Lane says
I recognized this pattern as being yours in an antique store yesterday. I photographed and posted about a cube tea pot today. I had never seen one before!
Absolutely gorgeous! What a beautiful Autumn – or Thanksgiving – table you could set.
Hi Lorraine, what a beautiful set of dishes. They are definitely keepers. I have found and am following you through My Romantic Home and hope to visit often. Please stop by my blog and perhaps you could follow me also. I would like that. Have a wonderful day. Hugs, Chris

Your post took me back to my childhood. One of my aunts had a set of these dishes. I always loved the falling leaves. Makes me smile to see your set of dishes. Glad you decided to keep them to enjoy each fall season. ~ Sarah

Lorraine, I linked YOUR recipe for your apple packages on my post because I love how your recipe uses the orange! And no additional "soda" to add even more calories! Thanks for sharing! Enjoy your weekend!
I have a few pieces of this pattern and I always display and use it every fall. It's perfect!
I have a few pieces of Hall, but I have never seen this beautiful pattern – just lovely!
Just a little something from Judy says
What a beautiful set of china to unwrap. Somehow, I think that you could make any set of china look good on your tablescapes, and this is no exception. I like the colors, especially with the mums you have with them. Will you unwrap some more collections for us?
These are beautiful and I think my Mom used to have a set of this pattern! I love them…thanks for sharing!
I once entered upon an antique shop with a room decorated with black and white tile flooring, and vintage kitchen cabinets, etc. and all things HALL. That began my love of Hall pottery. I collect hall creamers with, yes, the hall stamp on the bottom If you look at my sidebar you will see them on a little shelf. They are fun to look for when we wander through antique shops. We rarely buy things, but there is always a thrill to the hunt (and it;s not easy to find a hall creamer.) Your dishes are perfect for fall. I like seeing the dates and the "news" on/in newsprint used for wrapping!
That is a lovely set and perfect for fall. What a great treasure you found right there in your own home
Lady Farmer says
Your Hall china 'Autumn Leaf' is perfect! What a treasure to cherish and bring sweet memories each season as it is brought out!
Sweet Autumn Blessings to you!
Maggie Ann says
What a beautiful collection of Hall China! You must have a very complete set. The sugar & creamer are especially sweet. We visited Hall China in Ohio a couple of times on our trips to the Homer Laughlln outlet. They are fairly close together.
Oh, I see your Pinterest button. I'm going to go and have fun looking. I hope you'll visit my board too. I've had a ton of fun with Pinterest!
Thank you for your encouraging comment about my testimony post. That is my prayer too, that someone will open their hearts to the Lord. He is calling them, through us… but time is flying by.
Back to Pinterest, did you like that hanging bed on the porch? I wish I had room for one of those. It must be so relaxing. Have a great day, Maggie
What a lovely set of dishes! You're so lucky to have a special set to pull out every autumn.
What beautiful China! I have a weakness for finding vintage pieces, even if just one or two, at Goodwill or other second-hand places. I'll eagerly come home and research the markings on the back to see if they are of any value. This set is absolutely gorgeous!
I have this same set also. We called it Jewel-T. I inherited it from my Mema. When we finally made the decision to move out of our home and into our 5th wheel..I divided the set up with my 4 girls.
My son will get my set down the road.
I use it for Fall-Thanksgiving only. My Mema said they collected it thru getting gas at the gas stations. Boy I wish we would get something for gas now…lol
Thanks for sharing your set..I had forgot to take a picture of the complete set I had. Too late now.
Hugs Cindy from Rick-Rack and Gingham

These dishes will be a special to your family for years to come. I'm so glad you chose to keep them and am looking forward to a pretty tablescape from you! AND your pumpkin bars look divine Lorraine!
Lemon Lane Cottage says
I have a few pieces of Autumn leaf put away in the attic. Such a shame…I think I'll pull down a few boxes and see if I can locate it. Yours is beautitful. I adore that "I dream of Jeanie" teapot.
I have been thinking about the "junk" I will be leaving my girls to clear out. As soon as the holidays are over we will begin our purge here, too. Have a wonderful weekend. Patty
Maple Lane says
These dishes are perfect for this time of year. I noticed one piece in an earlier post of yours and wondered about it!
Good morning! I LOVE this set…Perfect for this time of year! (or anytime really) We are doing the whole cleaning things out, getting rid of excess thing too. Such a good feeling. Have a wonderful day! HUGS
What a GORGEOUS set!
Walking on Sunshine... says
And these were kept away in storage all these years?? They are absolutely beautiful!! I can see you wanting to keep these and use them during the fall season. They're beautiful. I hope going through all the many items in your mom's house is bringing you happy memories! Enjoy your day!
These are really pretty and perfect for this time of year(Definate keepers)My husband and I are also in a purging mood, its almost as if the stuff I have stored is weighing me down. Cleaning out someone elses home can be an eye opener.
What treasure to have, and to use.
It's a beautiful set and I can easily
see why you would want to keep it.
I did the same thing when my precious
mother passed away. I gave away many
things, hers and mine. I kept her
lovely white Noritake china that one
of my brothers sent to her when he
was in the service and stationed in
Japan. I treasure it now remembering
the joy it brought her and I can still
recall setting the dining table on
special occasions with that china
when I was a girl.
