Set of 6 - 1880's Charles Haviland & Co. Limoges "Moss Rose" Pattern Salad/Desert Plates
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. This set is from the Charles Haviland Company.
This lovely set of 6 salad/dessert plates is in the Moss Rose pattern. The ever popular pattern was a huge success for numerous companies for many years, including the present. Though the pattern is consistent, there are many slight variations to be found even among the Haviland pieces. The lithographed transfer consists of single and double lush pink moss rose blossoms on brown stems nestled among variegated green and blue leaves with trailing brown moss.
The salad/dessert measure 7 1/4" across and have gold trim. They are stamped with company Mark F, "H & Co., underlined over "L", circa 1876-1889 and with decorator Mark g, "Haviland & Co, Limoges", circa 1879-1889. There are no cracks, chips or repairs; minor gold wear on trim. Have (2) sets of 6 available for purchase.
