Here is the darling Hull Little Red Riding Hood Teapot with a Bouquet on her Skirt. Little Red Riding Hood has blue eyes, round pink cheeks, and blond hair peeking out from under her famous red hood. Her cape is tied with a gold bow, and her dress is decorated with blue lines at the collar and at the hem of her skirt. The front of her skirt is decorated with a decal of a full-blown orange-red poppy accented with purple flowers, white daisies, and green leaves. Her yellow and brown cross-hatch basket is painted only on the underside and looped over her left arm and blends into the gold-trimmed handle. Her other arm rests at her side and forms the gold-trimmed spout. Red's head and shoulders form the cover of this charming teapot.
Little Red Riding Hood was one of Hull's most popular lines, patented by Louise Bauer in 1943 and continued in production until around 1957. Though most of the decorating work was done by Regal China, the line continues to be known as Hull Pottery.
This teapot measures 8-3/4 inches tall with the cover and about 4-1/4 inches without the lid. It is 7-3/4 inches across the handle and spout, and 6-1/2 inches wide. The opening is 4-inches long by 2-1/4 inches wide.
“U.S.A.” is incised on the bottom.
The underside of the lid has a bit of roughness where it fits down inside the teapot and won’t be seen. There are a couple of white spots in her cape, one on the edge of her right shoulder and a smaller one on the hood, and a thin wear line on her right cheek. The gold on the tie of her cape shows some wear, especially on one end. The gold lines on the handle are worn, especially at the top of the handle where your thumb rests, and the middle two gold lines have some brown stains that may be able to be cleaned. There is a 1/8-inch hairline at the opening of the pouring spout.
