Today’s vintage find is a white pottery Madonna planter by Haeger Potteries. The smooth, matte glaze on this piece is too beautiful for words. This Mother Mary is styled for the Mid-Century with groovy flared sleeves and a robe that flows into a botanical planter. I think this planter would look lovely filled with succulents or freshly picked roses.
This piece speaks to the mother in me. Appropriately, she was a gift from my own mother who recently found her at a moving sale. I think this Mary is beautiful. Her peaceful presence will be a welcome addition to my future home.
I was excited to learn more about this pottery which I have long admired. Haeger Potteries was an American company that manufactured home goods for well over a century. Haeger began operations in Illinois in 1852 as the Dundee Brickyard. The company formed bricks from the clay available on the banks of the Fox River. David H. Haeger joined in ownership of the company in 1872 and eventually gave the company his name. Haeger began producing pottery in the 1920s and continued to do so until shuttering its plant in 2016.
