You can find this vase in The collectors encyclopedia of Hull Pottery by Brenda Roberts on page 49. A. E. Hull Pottery was founded in 1905 in Crooksville , Ohio , initially producing stoneware. By 1907, Hull Pottery had already expanded by adding a second plant and had grown to employ over 200 workers. By 1920, Hull was producing a wide variety of quality stoneware, planters, and art pottery, incorporating new airbrushed and blended glaze techniques. In the 1930s, Hull capitalized in the growing interest in art pottery and introduced several lines of matte finish, pastel, and floral items in the shape of vases, planters, ewers, and bowls, most in varying sizes. Their most successful items were the Little Red Riding Hood cookie jars which were patented in 1943 and began an entire new production line of figural kitchen and novelty items which continued well into the 1950s. Although best known for their pastel matte glazed ware, some of the lines were high gloss. Rosella, glossy coral on a pink clay body, was produced for a short time only; and Magnolia, although offered in a matte glaze, was produced in gloss as well. Tremendously successful late 1940s patterns included the spectacular Bow-Knot, Camellia, Dogwood, Poppy and Water Lily. The plant was destroyed in 1950 by a flood which resulted in a devastating fire when the floodwater caused the kilns to explode. The company rebuilt and equipped their new factory with the most modern of machinery, however, it was soon apparent that they would never be able to duplicate the classic matte glazes again. Hull Pottery ceased production in 1985. Ref: The Collectors Ultimate Encyclopedia of HULL Pottery, Volume 1 / by Brenda Roberts
