Here is a classic Hall China Los Angeles shape #083 six-cup Teapot in desirable Gold Decorated Cobalt Blue. The deep cobalt blue is decorated with a band of drizzled gold filigree on the shoulder and foot of the pot and around the rim of the cover. The handle, strainer spout, and pointed finial are also trimmed in gold. The Los Angeles shape, with its ribbed sides and high, footed form was first introduced in the 1920s. This gold decoration was added and became popular in the mid-1930s.
The measurements of this shapely Hall teapot are 5-3/4 inches tall without the cover, 7-1/2 inches with the cover, and 6 inches wide by 9-1/2 inches across the handle and spout.
It is stamped in gold, "Hall 083, 6 Cup, Made In U.S.A." The word "HALL" is incised on the bottom. The well-known black circle with the word "Hall" enclosed and "Made in U.S.A." below is nearly completely faded away. There is also a 6 and a 1 stamped off to the side. This mark was used by Hall from the 1930s through the 1960s.
There is a small 3/8-inch smooth chip on the inner rim that is hidden by the cover. There is also some normal wear on the gold trim, especially on the top knob and the solid gold band around the shoulder. There is no other damage to this beautiful teapot.
