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 Haviland & Co. white-ware blank was purchased and decorated outside the Haviland company. It is so well executed and beautiful, I would say it was done by a professional studio, if not, in a very advanced home-studio environment, though not signed by the artist. The portrait is of a gorgeous young lady from the early 1900's attired in a white, flowing, off-the-shoulder gown. Her long, slightly curled auburn hair, penetrating brown eyes, light blush cheeks, perfect red lips and fair complexion presents a vision of beauty and sophistication. She wears a jeweled necklace in her hair accompanied by delicate large gold loop earrings. The background is a rich burgundy with a wide gold band framing the portrait and medium gold outer rim of the plate.

The plate measures 9 1/2" across and is marked in green "Haviland France", which was the mark "I" Haviland mark, circa 1894-1931. There are no cracks, chips or repairs. Fantastic simplicity and beauty.
