The Hall China Company was organized in 1903 and incorporated under the laws of the State of Ohio. Its first president
was Robert Hall, Sr. The Hall China Company are manufacturers of vitrified fire proof cooking china and decorative
and plain tea pots, its products being the hardest and strongest ware on the market. It is acid and fireproof and
practically unbreakable. It is the only kind of ware produced in the world, in which body and glaze are produced
with one firing at a temperature of 2,500 degrees. The result of this operation is a china absolutely nonabsorbent,
a sanitary feature of great importance. Before the organization of the Hall China Company all earthenware used
for cooking purposes was imported from Europe, principally from Luxemburg, Alsace Lorraine, and other districts
in Germany and France.
The present officers of the Hall China Company are: F. I. Simmers, president and sales manager; Harvey MeHenry,
vice president; and Malcolm W. Thompson, secretary and treasurer. The company's plants are located at Walnut and
Fourth streets, and Broadway and Sixth streets.
