Full Answer

When Haeger was first established, the company specialized in flower pots. Haeger's first collection of Artware pottery was the Adam and Eve collection, which started production in 1914. This collection features flower pots modeled in a classical Greek style. These pots are simply shaped, often with angular handles and dark, uniform glazes. Because of its age, pottery from the Adam and Eve collection is likely to be highly valued in relation to other Haeger pieces.

In general, older pottery tends to be more difficult to find and often becomes damaged or worn over time. For this reason, older pottery by a certain maker is frequently more valuable than recent items, assuming the older pottery is still in good condition. Imperfections such as chips, bumps and anomalies in the glaze may negatively affect the value of a piece of pottery. However, vintage and antique pottery usually displays slight imperfections because it is more often hand-made or hand-painted. A vintage hand-made piece with minor flaws tends to be more valuable than a flawless, factory-made piece.

Vintage Haeger pottery most often appears in the form of vases or art figurines of animals such as panthers and bulls.
