Haeger Potteries was founded in East Dundee, Illinois in 1871 by David H. Haeger. Initially a brick manufacturer, in 1914 Haeger began producing commercial artware and ceramics for the florist and home markets. Royal Hickman joined the company in 1938 and the pottery and finishes he created under the Royal Haeger line during his tenure are popular for their art deco lines and lush finishes. Haeger Potteries ceased operations in 2016.
