Q: My wife bought this teapot for her mother more than 50 years ago at Hall Galleries in Steiger's Department Store in Springfield, Mass. The only markings on the bottom are "Hall, 6 Cup, made in USA." Can you give us any information about this teapot, the maker, and value?

A: Hall China Co. opened in East Liverpool, Ohio, in 1903. Hall teapots made from the 1920s to the 1950s are popular collectibles. Your teapot, in Hall's "French" shape, is part of Hall's gold-decorated teapot line called "Gold Label." The line was introduced in 1920. The daisy decoration is one the most common and was used on French teapots of all sizes, ranging from one cup to 12 cups. French teapots were also made in plain colors and with other decorations. Hall China Co. merged with Homer Laughlin China Co. in 2010. Value of your teapot: $35 if in good condition, with no wear on the gold.
