An American, David Haviland, was an importer of French and English porcelains during the early to mid-1800's. In 1849 he moved his family to Limoges, France, to begin his own porcelain manufacturing and decorating factory and as a result, Haviland China, was born. Upon his death in 1879, his two sons split the company, Charles formed Haviland & Co., while Theodore formed Theodore Haviland. This item is from the Charles Haviland Company.
