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. These items are from the Theodore Haviland Company.
The pattern is Red Flower, Green Leaves, Schleiger #874, and is on blank 805. The pattern consists of small green three pedal leaves and delicate red blossoms. The pattern is very similar to the Haviland & Co. Clover Leaf pattern and could be used together. Gold trim on rims, handles and base of cup. The decorator mark is "Theodore Haviland - Limoges - France - Patent Applied For" in red, circa 1903-1925.
The bouillon cups measure 2" in height and 3 1/2" across the top; the saucers measure 5 3/8" across. There are no cracks, chips, repairs or discoloration. I have two extra saucers that will be included at no charge.
