CFH/GDM Limoges Hand Painted Cabinet Plate w/Dogwood Blossoms Floral Motif - image 1 of 6

Charles Field Haviland started a small decorating studio in 1859. In 1870 a porcelain manufacturing company was established. Upon his retirement in 1881 the company was taken over by Gerard, Dufraisseis and Morel. The various Haviland companies sold undecorated white-ware to outside decorating companies and smaller studios.

This beautiful CFH/GDM Limoges hand painted cabinet plate was executed in a home-studio environment by a skilled artist. The tray exhibits a curved branch of large, gorgeous white dogwood blossoms tinged with pink and outlined in crimson nestled among shaded green with brown edged leafage. The background is a rich buttery yellow with light-to-medium brown and pastel blue/gray highlights.

The gently scalloped plate measures 8 1/2" across and is stamped in green "CFH over GDM". This is mark C-3 which was used from 1882 - 1891, combined mark of Charles Field Haviland and Gerald, Dufraisseis & Morel. The artist's initials and date 'M.S.R. 86' appear on the underside of the plate. There are no cracks, chips or repairs. Great decorated early Haviland plate.
