The first steps in determining a viable price for a piece of Haeger pottery is to identify the type of piece it is accurately and confirm it is a genuine article. For instance, determine whether the particular item in question is classified as a bowl, an ashtray or a candy dish.

After determining the classification of a piece, it is necessary to insure that it is a genuine piece of pottery from Haeger Potteries. Typically potters use specific markings that signify certain characteristics about a piece, such as when or where it was made. Using a pottery markings guide, cross-reference the markings on the object with markings outlined in the guide. Many times a pottery's website contains a list of its markings by year or potter.

Once the piece is categorized and has proven to be genuine, locate similar or the same recently sold pieces. Common available resources include RubyLane.com, JustArtPottery.com and even eBay.
