David Haviland began his American Porcelain company in 1842; while David had begun his ideas for fine porcelain well before 1842 it wasn't until his trip to Limoges France where he was able to send his French porcelain to America to be painted. In 1890, his son Theodore Haviland built a factory in Limoges to support their growth and further their business. Whilst expanding, David's prodigy found new methods involving the fire process and methods for decorating porcelain. The Haviland business still continues Today and has been overseen by other Haviland men such as Theodore's grandson, William Haviland, and Great-grandson, Theodore Haviland II. Present day, while they still dabble in the art of porcelain the company also produces modern silverware, crystal, and giftware. It is estimated that the Haviland company has over 60,000 patterns in all different shapes and sizes of porcelain. The unique characteristic about Haviland porcelain is that no two plates are the same, so you are getting a one-of-a-kind piece. Interesting enough, the Haviland business began in France due to the fact that they could ship the products back to the United States "raw" (unpainted) for cheaper since American labor was cheaper than European labor back in the day. It is also interesting that once in America each plate was hand-painted by a group of women known as the " Widow's Salvation." We currently carry 4 pieces of the floral collection by Theodore Haviland, 3 salad plates, and 1 serving platter; be sure to check them out so you can have the whole collection!
