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. Charles Haviland produced this item.

This beautiful hand painted pitcher was executed in a small home studio environment on a Haviland China blank. The floral motif consists of wispy, white flowers with yellow centers clustered on brown stems with variegated green leaves against an all-over pastel pink background. The rim and handle is decorated with gold. The pitcher measures 8 1/2" in height, 3 5/8" across the top and 4 1/4" across the bottom. The decorative nautical handle consists of a raised anchor design with cable rope handle. The Haviland back-stamp is Mark "F" - "H & CO. over a line over L", circa 1876-1889. There is also the impressed English Registry mark and "2 pints" indicating the capacity. There are no cracks, chips or repairs; a small dark spot by the handle which was caused in firing the decorations; minor gold wear on the handle. Great item.
