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 and decorating factory and as a result, Haviland China, was born. Upon his death in 1879 his sons split the company. Charles formed Haviland & Co., and Theodore formed Theodore Haviland which produced these items.
The pattern is Apple Blossom which consists of delicate white/pink shades flowers with a background of soft green and gray flora on a cream colored blank with gold trim. The pattern was produced from 1940-1989. This piece carries the Mark T which was used from 1937-1956. This lovely small size platter measures 11 3/8" in length and 8 7/8" in width. The red and black mark is "Theodore Haviland - New York - Made in America - Apple Blossom". There are no cracks, chips or repairs; some minor utensil marks or gold wear may be present. Have additional pieces of this pattern in my store.
