Set of 4 Haviland & Co. Limoges "Napkin Fold" Luncheon Plates, Circa 1880's
The shape of these luncheon plates is known as folded napkin, as all four corners are neatly folded inward. They measure 8 3/4" across and carry the "H & Co. over L", mark F, circa 1876-1889. The motif consists of a square central cartouche and wide border of Bachelor Button and Black-eyed Susan flowers with gold highlights and border trim. Each plate is decorated in a different color arrangement in shades of blues, crimsons and peach. There are no cracks, chips or repairs on this set. Some very minor age-related wear to the gold trim and enameled napkin fold portion.
Each plate is also marked "Fabrique Par Haviland & Co. Limoges - Pour French Potter & Wilson - Kinsley's or Kinsley". They are dated, 1889, 1889, 1888 & 1882; the 1882 plate is also marked "Chicago". The French Potter & Wilson - Chicago Illinois business was formed in 1879 as importers and dealers in crockery, china glassware, etc. and was an off-shoot of the original Boston House, established in 1822 by Abram French.
