Experts believed this vintage glossy glazed pottery was made by Hull Pottery in the 1950s but was not marked with their familiar Hull mark. Instead, it has a non-skid surface on the bottom. This planter features a ballerina in dark green dress sitting atop an pale pink colored planter. There are no chips or cracks but there is crazing at the bottom consistent with age.
Note: Hull pottery was made in Crooksville, Ohio, from 1905. Addis E. Hull bought the Acme Pottery Company and started making ceramic wares. In 1917, A. E. Hull Pottery began making art pottery as well as the commercial wares. For a short time, 1921 to 1929, the firm also sold pottery imported from Europe. The dinnerwares of the 1940s (including the Little Red Riding Hood line), the high gloss artwares of the 1950s, and the matte wares of the 1940s, are all popular with collectors. The firm officially closed in March 1986.
