Vintage Thingie Thursday

Today I have more of my vintage Hall dishes. This is part of my HALL'S JEWEL TEA AUTUMN LEAF pattern.
Probably the most famous of Hall's patterns is the "Jewel Tea" or Autumn Leaf. This pattern is extremely collectible, Autumn Leaf was distributed as a premium by the Jewel Tea Company. This pattern was first produced in the 1930's and was discontinued in 1976. Now some peices will sale for up to a thousand dollars. Of course I didn't pay that for any of mine...lol...
I HOPE YOU ENJOYED MY VINTAGE THINGIES! SEE YOU NEXT WEEK! FOR MORE WONDERFUL VINTAGE THINGIES VISIT COLORADO LADY!

  4. Wow! You have a large collection. I see lots of these pieces at auctions and antique shops. And while I collect Hall, I don't have one piece of their Autumn Leaf pattern. I remember the Jewel Tea man stopping at our house.

  10. These are soo pretty Molly! And fun to read the comments about the Jewel Tea Man ( only remember a Fuller Brush Man myself LOL)

    Good thing you have a big house ( that's a mighty large collection of collectibles!)

    PS the note about the son the other day was "supposed" to be a hint for you ... a nudge to push hard on the doc visit for the same thing
