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 Haviland & Co. white-ware Osier or Basketweave blanks, were purchased and decorated outside the Haviland company. They are well executed, beautiful and unique. Decorated in a very advanced home-studio environment, the central motif is different on both and consists of sea shells along with colorful salt-water vegetation and coral. The embossed basket-weave border is a soft pastel tan, separated from the white by a row of gold dots. An inter-row of gold dots and loops surrounds the verge, framing the seascape motif. The plates are not signed by the artist.

The plates measure 9" across and are stamped with the Haviland Mark "D", in green, "H & Co." over two lines, circa 1876-1886. There are no cracks, chips or repairs. One-of-a-kind items.
