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 fabulous plates are from the Charles Haviland Company.

This wonderful hand painted scenic charger plate was created in a small home studio environment by an accomplished artist of the era. The serene image of a lone Dutch windmill perched along the craggy Dutch seacoast give one a sense of peace and solitude. The pallet of colors range from shaded gray, russet, black and brown to soft pastel shades of blue, green and pink. The plate measures 11" across and carries the "H & Co. over L", mark F, circa 1876-1889. It is initialed by the artist and dated 12-11-83. There are no cracks, chips or repairs. Unique and beautiful scenic charger plate.
