Overview

The Hagen-Renaker pottery company of California was founded in the garage of John and Maxine Renaker in the mid-1940s. They vigorously pursued the dream of having their own pottery company, creating appealing, yet affordable, figurines, along with a few table pieces. Their dream blossomed into reality, and the business has grown over the years, a testament to the desirability and durability of their creations.
Here are the unique products the company produced as it grew, illustrating how it and the designers who worked there evolved and matured. It presents hundreds of charming Hagen-Renaker creations, from their realistic horses to whimisical or stylized animals in many varieties. Also included are some fabulous test pieces, a chapter dedicated to identifying and dating Hagen-Renaker pieces, and a current price guide. This invaluable guide identifies the period in which these items were created, and gives tips for recognizing Hagen-Renaker models and the imitations that have followed.
