Synopsis

The House of Haeger 1944-1969 The Post-War Era by Joyce Paradis, Joe Paradis

This outstanding work showcases Haeger Potteries' collectible ceramic artware during the post World War II years, with over 370 stunning photos documenting the shapes and glazes that characterized Haeger's production during this exciting period. Located in Dundee, Illinois, Haeger is well known for its striking, often trend-setting designs and its variety of high quality glazes. Ranging from dramatic to whimsical, the artware shown here includes figurines of animals and people, planters, vases, TV lamps, bookends, ashtrays, candleholders, and more. Collectors of Studio Haeger and Haeger's Flowerware designs will be pleased with the coverage provided. Those looking for the human interest touch will find profiles of Eric Olsen, design director from 1946 to 1974; Helmut Bruchmann, ceramic engineer from 1953 to 1967; and the imcomparable Sebastiano Maglio, an eighth generation potter from Italy employed by Haeger from 1963 to 1995. Current market values are provided in the captions. This is a must-have reference for all Haeger collectors and art pottery enthusiasts.
