Haeger Pottery

Haeger Potteries, Inc. was founded in 1871, in Dundee, Illinois, by David Haeger.

They first started out producing bricks to help rebuild structures damaged by the Great Chicago Fire of 1871, under the name Haeger Brick and Tile Company. This lasted for about 30 years until 1914, when they turned their attention to making artware, under the direction of Edmund Haeger. Martin Stangl was one of their first designers, working on Arts & Crafts style wares.

During the 1934 World’s Fair, they had an actual working factory setup, introducing customers to some of the products Haeger made.

In 1938, they introduced the Royal Haeger line in honor of one of their designers, Royal Arden Hickman. It was also the year Edmund Haeger’s son-in-law, Joseph Estes, was promoted to general manager.

In 1947, Eric Olsen joined the company, introducing the Diamond Jubilee line. It was 1950′s modern decor, with figural lamps, mystic priests and more.

Today, Haeger Pottery is still in operation today making lamp bases and florist wares, under the direction of Joseph Estes’ daughter, Alexandra Haeger Estes.

    Im cleaning out my moms house she passed away recently and came across a hexagon shape pottery planter/bowl with the diamond pattern. Cream in color. Has the 3 hole markings on bottom for the glazing and a carved out 6 with a stamp “Haeger USA and looks like #793. I am wondering approximately what year this came from or its worth. Thanks so much if you can help me.

    I have a very large planter that I purchased at a auction a couple of years ago. I am unable to find anything that looks like it. It is 16 1/2 inches tall, 16 1/2 inches across the top. The pattern is kind of like a basket but yet not. Top is brown then blue then a brown lace valance type look then blue again, brown the brown with white. Has a leaf patterned roller stand with it. I do have some pictures I could try to send. It also has the name S. Maglio and a Large number 1 on the bottom along with the Haeger name. Thank you

    I have several Haeger Mandarin Orange pieces to sell. What is the best way to find a buyer?

    I have a haeger pottery that is solid blue and is of a mother with praying hands attached to a cradle planter. Could you tell me when it was made and the approximate value? Thank You.
