A bit of history about Haeger Potteries:
"Haeger Potteries, headquartered on the clay-rich banks of Illinois' Fox River just 45 miles northwest of Chicago, shares significant history with its giant neighbor, known as "the most American" of major American cities.
In 1871, the same year of the great Chicago fire, a young German immigrant named David H. Haeger founded the company originally known as the Dundee Brickyard.
Over the next 130 years under four generations of family leadership, this small town brickmaker was to become America's oldest and largest production pottery."
2016 will be the last year of production for Haeger Pottery as they sadly announced they will close their doors after 145 years making pottery in the US. Here is a copy of the press release that leaves a lot of food for thought. Purchasing this beautiful piece of pottery will become an iconic piece of mid century modern history in your home.
RECENT PRESS RELEASE 2016
"After more than 100 years in business, Haeger Potteries will cease its manufacturing operations in East Dundee, Illinois. We anticipate ending our operations on or about the end of May 2016. According to Alexandra Haeger Estes, President of Haeger Potteries, "in this, our 145th Anniversary year, this is the most difficult decision we have faced.
The ongoing recession has reduced our customer base and foreign competition has decimated our artware and decorative accessory business. Gift shops and independent furniture stores are almost non-existent, and the larger stores that have survived are purchasing goods from abroad.
The reality is that we are finding it more and more difficult to compete in a market with significant wage pressure, increased regulation and generally rising costs." Haeger Potteries has operated as a family-owned American business, for 4 generations, since its founding in 1871 and has been proud to have been a part of East Dundee for 145 years. "Haeger has an enormous connection to this community and is grateful for its ongoing support.
We want to thank our wonderful and dedicated employees, our customers and suppliers for supporting our business over these many years."
