This beautiful hand painted Haviland Limoges plate has a muted floral scene which consists of a bouquet of flowers at the bottom and runners up the sides of the plate. The flowers are lovely deep lavender and burnt orange. It is highlighted with a gold border which is intact and shows no signs of wear. The plate measures 8½ inches and there are no chips or cracks to the porcelain.
The back bears the identifying mark of the Haviland & Company Limoges Porcelain Factory, (underglaze full name with "France" in green), as referenced by the "Collector's Encyclopedia of Limoges Porcelain", 3rd edition, by author Mary Frank Gaston...dating this piece to between 1894 and 1931.
