Antiques Considered - March 5, 2014

These two small pitchers are part of a larger pitcher collection that belongs to a Northern Neck family.  The cream pitcher on the left is marked “Hall”, and the lustreware one on the right is unmarked.  The Hall piece is 3” high, and the other is 4”.  Both are in excellent condition.


The Hall pitcher comes from The Hall China Co., a firm founded in East Liverpool, Ohio by Robert Hall in 1903.  It remains in production today, and is famous for several of its iconic motifs, such as Jewel Tea china.

This brown pitcher is typical of the Hall china of the early twentieth century.  Hall pieces have a large following, and may be termed “collectible.”  The production has been quite extensive, thus in many cases the values are affordable.  This pitcher is worth $20.

The lustreware pitcher is especially nice, with excellent modeling and decoration.  This piece dates from the mid-nineteenth century, and comes from Staffordshire in England.  Lustreware does not sell as well as it did a few years ago, but still has a good market.  Obviously, the more heavily decorated a piece is, the greater its value, most notably when the scenes depict historical figures or recognizable places.

The Sunderlund lustre plaques are the most popular form of lustreware, and bring high prices both at auction and in retail settings.  As with Hall pieces lustreware has collector clubs that keep the market fluid.  They are available over the Internet, and usually have members who are willing to share their knowledge with other collectors.

The late Carroll B. Barnes, a son of the Northern Neck who died two years ago, was a nationally recognized authority on lustreware as well as all other forms of Staffordshire.  His collection was sold several years before his death, and still in auction advertisements, when a piece comes on the market, it will be listed as having been his.

—Happy Antiquing!
