I learned something new and it was Pink

I love learning new things, finding a new treasure, and having a chance to do a little research. I recently found this pink, what I thought to be a casserole dish, at Salvation Army for $1.99. When I turned it over I saw it was marked "Made exclusively by The Hall China Co. for Hotpoint Refrigerators". This was new to me. Of course, we all know (and highly covet) Pyrex Refrigerator Sets, but I didn't know of any others. This 1040's refrigerator dish with lid was
the forerunner of Tupperware.

The original Hallware represents an era baby-boomers can relate to. There's a good chance their mothers and grandmothers had several pieces of Hall that they used in the kitchen, as the china was often given via promotions by companies like Westinghouse, Hotpoint, Lipton, Jewel Tea, and many more.

I just liked it because it was pink ........ being from the 1940's was an added bonus.

Have a blessed Saturday and please be sure to stop by How Sweet the Sound (Please click here) to visit with Beverly and all the other participants of Pink Saturday.

Got it at Goodwill

Some people have all the luck at Goodwill. I guess I go the wrong days, as I never seem to find such goodies.

I love your pinks. I'm really behind on my Pink Saturday but glad I stopped by or I would have missed them. Happy Pink Saturday.
