Hull - The Heavenly Pottery for Pink Saturday

I'm joining up with Pink Saturday ... one of the most popular linky parties in blogland. If you love pink as much as we do... check out the rest of the group at How Sweet the Sound.

This is a piece of Hull Pottery, often referred to as the "Heavenly Pottery." Most of the pottery have these beautifully blended colors which is easy to see why it has this nickname. It was made in Crooksville Ohio by a man who started the business in 1905. After surviving owner changes, a flood and a fire, the company could not survive overseas competition and had to close in 1986. Sad isn't it? This pottery always catches my eye with its beautiful pastels. This piece is for sale in my shop, here at Bella Rosa Antiques.


Also available and just listed this week are these sweet lace trimmed hankies made in Belgium.



Powerful pinks pop off these postcards. Neat alliteration, huh? Peter Piper picked a peck of pickled peppers works much better! Moving on...




This dresser set is soooo sweet. I love how the two pin dishes stack right on top of each other and then fit right inside the larger box for storage. Such a great gift idea or maybe for yourself if you want to treat yourself for Valentine's Day!
Enjoy your weekend...we may go sledding tomorrow. Lots more snow arrived in our neck of the woods. More is on the way next week I heard!
Luckily there is plenty of pink to keep me thinking of spring! Enjoy!

That Hull vase is gorgeous! I've always wanted a piece of Hull pottery, but I know it's very expensive. I hope one day to find a piece that the seller doesn't know how valuable it really is!
Happy Pink Saturday!

I love your Hull Vase... I have some Hull pieces and I've always been drawn to their color palette. I don't know that much about it, just that its easily recognizable and I'm attracted to it. *winks* But I must say that at times it is difficult for me to differentiate between the Hull pieces I have and the Roseville pieces... to me both are equally lovely and somewhat similar.

Hull pottery is so pretty, but I have resisted collecting it as my house is filled with mostly Homer Laughlin pottery. Thanks for sharing this wonderful vase.

Thank you also for stopping by my blog. I have a small set of Lu Ray that I'm going to use for my Easter table this year. It's been boxed up at least 5 years and I am anxious to see it again. The colours seem to me that they will be perfect for the spring holiday.

Jillian, I LOVE! it all. Such great memories of estate "sailing" in Florida.

I'm still visiting around PS posts. Have a wonderful week.

dana said...

What a gorgeous piece of Hull. . . .and yes it is such a shame that the co. had to close because of foreign competition. Sadly, that's been the demise of many a quality company. I love your other shares, too!!!

We're expecting the "storm of the century" starting today with freezing rain, followed by two days of heavy snow. At least we had 3 warm days last week....it was so nice to get outside for awhile and not be frozen!

Have a great week and HPS!!! L. Dana

Beverly said...

Jillian, this is a gorgeous Hull piece. I have a piece in my bedroom which belonged to my paternal grandmother. It is a treasure for me.

Happy Pink Saturday.
