Using Haeger …Floral Friday

It’s been awhile since I’ve featured one brand of vintage pottery on the blog so that’s what’s in store for today. Haeger Pottery was established in Dundee, Illinois by David Haeger in 1871. The art pottery division was still producing pieces on a limited basis until the company shuttered in 2016. In the end, Haeger was the last of the major American industrial art pottery companies.

Today we have two large vases and one medium size pedestal planter to utilize.

A large, dark tan, Haeger Ewer pitcher vase houses a variety of dried plant elements. This will be used as a floor vase to accentuate autumn decor.

The other large, dark tan container is a Haeger “Tulip” vase. A gladiolus stem is surrounded by other red-hued flowers and blossoms.

A large Craspedia plant is rooted in the burgundy-red mid-century Haeger planter. Obviously, I decided on an overall circular theme.


The Blue Jay of Happiness quotes the self-proclaimed “Mad Potter of Biloxi (Mississippi)” George E. Ohr (1857-1918). “And the potter said unto the clay, ‘Be Ware’, and it was.”
