Hall Cookie Jars


hall cookie jars Autumn Leafhall cookie jars Chinese Red JarIn August of 1903, the Hall China Company was established by Robert Hall in East Liverpool, Ohio. The business initially operated with three kilns and thirty-eight employees to produce spittoons, bedpans and dinnerware. One year later Hall died and his son, Robert Taggert Hall took over the operation.

The initial years of Hall China were very rocky, however in 1911, after years of research Robert created a new glazing process which was strong, non-porous, and craze-proof. The resulting product was very dense, did not absorb moisture, and held heat well.This process proved to be the catalyst that propelled the company to success.

During WWI china products from Europe could not easily be imported. Hall used this opportunity to become the primary supplier of casseroles, teapots, coffeepots, coffee urn liners and other ware used by the military, and institutions.By 1923, Hall claimed the title of "The Worlds Largest Manufacturer of Fireproof Cooking China in the World."

In 1930, a new plant was built on the east side of East Liverpool. In 1936 Hall began making dinnerware lines for major retailers such as Sears and Montgomery Wards, as well as providing serving pieces for railroads and major airlines.The Hall China Company is still operating in this plant today with production mainly focused on it's extensive dinnerware lines.

For the most part Hall limited it's cookie jar production to canister type jars which were sold as an accessory to its kitchen utility lines. Because of the large number of jars produced by hall from the 1930s through the present, there are many styles and variations available. Today collectors consider vintage hall cookie jars to be quite collectible.
