The Haeger company started as a Dundee, Illinois brickyard along the Fox River in 1852, using clay from the riverbank. David H. Haeger, a German immigrant, became part owner of the Dundee Brickyard in 1871. Within a year Haeger was sole owner and had extended the business to include tile. After the Great Chicago Fire of 1871, Haegar shipped bricks into the city to help rebuild Chicago. By the 1920s the brickyard's production included teaware, luncheonware, crystal and glassware.
At the Century of Progress Exposition in 1934 in Chicago, Haeger Potteries' exhibit included a complete working ceramic factory where souvenir pottery was made on the spot. The Haeger Potteries closed this year in 2016.
This Royal Haeger set screams mid century modern. Awesome atomic orange color. Although this probably was not originally sold as a set, this is now being sold together. The ashtray has a classic 1950's boomerang shape. The color is bright and all pieces are in wonderful condition. The ashtray has been used but does not smell of cigarette smoke.
Perfect decorator pieces. Perfect collectible. They display well from all angles.
Exceptional set in that it is undamaged, no chips, no cracks, no scratches to glaze, no crazing. Any non-perfections are from the firing/manufacturing process. No evidence of repair or modification was detected. The white spots are studio light reflections.
