Hall Coffee Shapes

Million Dollar Coffee Pot

The Million Dollar Coffee Pot was made by the Hall China Company for the F.S. Martin Company which was located in Chicago Ill. Production of the coffee pot began in 1939. We believe the backstamp shown here is an earlier version of the coffee pot. This backstamp was later replaced with a round gold backstamp that includes the F.S Martin Company name. This coffee pot originally sold for from $4.95 to $7.50 which was indicated on the various backstamps.

Production Years: (1939-)

Colors That Have Been Found: ( Black, Brown Luster, Canary, Chinese Red, Emerald, Green Luster, Indian Red, Marine)

Coffelator Coffee Pot

Hall China produced this fantastic coffee pot for the Coffelator Company of Newark, New jersey in 1939. The patent for this design was owned by Coffelator. Because this coffee pot was made by other companies it is sometimes confusing to collectors. It is easy to tell a Hall Coffelator from those made by other companies by the white underside of the pot.
Coffelator colors that have been found include
Black, Chinese Red, Cobalt, Emerald, Indian Red (tangerine), and Ivory. It was reported to have been made in delphinum, but we has not been seen in this color.

Production Years: (1939-)
