Do you have an image to share? The numbers are rarely recorded and the color and shape would be much more helpful. The chip would be damaging to the value so an image ot the spout would help too to see how much.

Thank you for the images. They help greatly.

 

This is an unique Hall China Company teapot for sure. The pattern is Airflow and it was introduced in 1940. These would have a value in the range of 100.00-125.00 according to price guides in this warm yellow.

 

These Hall China teapots are priced fairly well in books but the actual antique market is showing a low value unfortunately for all of Hall's famous teapots today. These no longer are selling at high end auctions and at local sales and online sales the values are very low..no where near price guide numbers.

 

Airflow, with its unique look, does sell a bit higher across the board in the range of 39.00-55.00 but I have given you some raw data below to show you how tough the market is right now for these pretty pots.

 

Here is are some examples not exact but close to what we are talking about.

VINTAGE-HALL COLLECTIBLE TEAPOT-VERY PRETTY BLUE/GOLD For your consideration, a beautiful blue, trimmed with gold vintage teapot made by Hall China. It was made in the USA, is a 6 cup beauty with a hook cover lid, it is numbered #0749

 

I wish that I had better news but I can only tell you what the market is doing and this would be a good antique to hold on to and enjoy until the antique sales return to their past heights. Unfortunately too the spout chips are fairly noticable which would bring values down another 10.00 or more to a collector. The shape is still pretty and I think a buyer could over look them but these are not rare enough to make this insignificant. In the last seven years I find 74 lots of these Airflow model teapots (of different glazes) so this is another reason why condition is going to impact value.

All my best, Dori
