Description

Here are a mid-century candy dish and mid-century window box planter, from Hull Pottery Company’s Butterfly line. The candy dish has a square shape and a pedestal base. The planter has a rectangular shape. Each item has a scalloped rim, a creamed-colored background that is decorated with slightly raised flowers and butterflies, and an interior that is painted blue. The rim around the candy dish’s base is also painted blue. The flowers that are on all sides of both items are small and are hand-painted blue and pink. The candy dish also has a large hand-painted blue butterfly (on one of its sides) and a large hand-painted black butterfly (on the opposite side). The planter also has a large hand-painted pink buttterly and a small hand-painted blue butterfly (on one of its long sides) and large hand-painted black butterfly (on the opposite side). The candy dish has marks on its bottom of “Hull, B6, and c ‘56”. The planter has marks on its bottom of “Hull USA, B8, and c ‘56”.

A. E. Hull Pottery Company was founded in 1905, in Crooksville, Ohio. In the 1950s, the name was changed to Hull Pottery Company. The company closed in 1986. Hull initially produced utilitarian stoneware, dinnerware, and decorative tiles. Its first line of art pottery was introduced around 1920. Beginning around 1940, it produced the pastel-colored art pottery pieces for which it is well known, with matte finishes and (for a few pottery lines) with high-gloss finishes. These two Butterfly items have a matte finish. They are from a line that was produced in 1956, which included wall hangings, planters, baskets, candlesticks, vases, ashtrays, and other decorative items. The company also created Butterfly pieces with other finishes and without the black butterfly and the blue interior that is seen on these two items.

This candy dish is 4 5/8 inches tall (including the pedestal base) and has a diameter of 5 1/2 inches. This planter is 12 1/2 inches (wide) by 2 7/8 inches (high) by 4 inches (deep).

Both items are in good condition, with no chips, cracks, crazing, repairs, or stains. They have a few small areas where the glaze is not perfectly smooth. Image no. 8 is an example. (The area in image no. 8 was been significantly magnified, to highlight the small ‘indent’ in the glaze.) Manufacturing flaws such as this, which are not chips or cracks, are not uncommon on old pottery pieces.
