Here is a large set of Theodore Haviland Limoges porcelain china. It is on the 122 blank in the Schleiger line, the pattern is Schleiger 314-G. The pieces have two marks, an impressed TH mark with a Legion of Honor medal in between the letters, and a red decorator's mark that reads "Porcelaine Theodore Haviland Limoges France," also with the Legion of Honor ribbon medal across the top. The TH mark dates the set to between 1894-1957, the decorator mark in red dates the set to between 1894- early 1900s.
Several of the pieces are slightly damaged with small chips, some have more serious chips, some are undamaged. The set includes a soup tureen, two covered casseroles, oval open serving bowl, gravy boat with attached underplate, four butterpats, three tea cups, large and small oval platters, nine dinner plates, eight luncheon plates, one salad plate, five soup bowls, thirteen saucers, one berry bowl, and a butter dish insert.
The soup tureen is in very good condition, there is a tiny nick on one of the points at the cutout for the ladle. I do not have the ladle. The covered vegetable or casserole dishes are in excellent and very good condition. One has no damage, one has a small chip in the rim generally hidden when the lid is on. The open oval vegetable bowl has two chips in the top rim, one medium-large and one small, and one chip on the foot base. The bowl is 9 5/8" x 7" with pierced handles. The gravy boat does not have any chips or cracks to the edges, but there is a weird chip or ding to the underplate just beneath one of the spouts.
The butterpats are 3 1/8" wide. They are all in excellent condition with no chips or cracks. Of the tea cups, one is perfect and two have chips in the rim. The large oval platter is 19" x 13." It has three chips in the rim, two small ones along the edge and one larger visible in the gilded handle. The small platter is 12" x 8." It has one small chip on the underside of the handle, barely visible from the top.
The dinner plates are 10 1/8" wide. Five are in excellent condition, four have chips along the rims in varying degrees. The luncheon plates are 9" wide. Four are excellent with no damage, four have chips along the rim. One of the damaged lunch plates has a large chip with a crack. The single salad plate is 8" wide with three small chips in the rim.
The soup bowls are 7 1/2" wide. One is excellent with no damage, the other four have various chips along the rims. The saucers are 5 5/8" wide. Four are excellent, the other nine have chips of varying sizes along the rims. The berry bowl is 5 1/8" wide, in excellent condition. The butter dish insert is 4 3/8" wide. It is designed to set in the dish, over chipped ice, in order to keep the butter cool.
