This exhibition contained over 200 pieces from member of the association (this year's exhibit will contain over 300 pieces).

Side-by-side comparisons of early Haeger pottery with vases from Fulper and Stangl.

Early Haeger, again, compared with Fulper and Stangl shapes and glazes.

 

Haeger from the teens and 20s. Note the Teco-like three-footed salad bowl in the center foreground. The glaze is virtually identical to one produced at Fulper.

Early vases from the teens and 20s. Haeger has recently begun producing some of these shapes.

Examples of Haeger in its well-known and often misidentified Geranium Leaf green glaze. Other pottery firms in the Midwest--like RumRill--used glazes that are almost identical to it.

 

A few of the many lamps lamps that Haeger produced. The tall urn shape (sans shade) in the center dates to the late teens.

Haeger that was produced in the late 20s and early 30s featured strong shapes and simple matt glazes


 Transition from early 30s ware to figural ware of the Hickman era.
