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 lovely plates are from the Charles Haviland Company.

The shape of these luncheon plates is knows as folded napkin, as all four corners are neatly folded inward. They measure 8 3/4" across and carry the "H & Co. over L", mark F, circa 1876-1889. The motif consists of a square central cartouche and wide border of Bachelor Button and Black-eyed Susan flowers with gold highlights and border trim. The colors are cobalt and medium blue. There are no cracks or repairs. One plate has a 3/16" flake on the inside of the base. The other has a 3/16" flake on the underside of the outer edge that barely impacts the top of the edge. (see photos) Some very minor age-related wear to the gold trim and enameled napkin fold portion. With this said, they are in very good condition for their age and are priced accordingly.

Each plate is also marked "Fabrique Par Haviland & Co. Limoges - Pour French Potter & Wilson - Chicago - Kinsley - 1882". The French Potter & Wilson - Chicago Illinois business was formed in 1879 as importers and dealers in crockery, china, glass, etc. and was an off-shoot of the original Boston House, established in 1822 by Abram French. These plates were part of the other set of 4 listed in my store.
