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 the blanks for these beautiful painted pieces.
This set of 5 hand painted soup bowls, circa 1900-1920, were executed in a small home studio environment on a Haviland china blank. The colorful sea-life motif resembles a salt water aquarium with scallops, oysters, conch, sea cucumbers, coral, kelp and more in a panorama of pastel colors and narrow gold rim. The design is different on each of the bowls. The coup-style bowls measure 7 1/2" across, 1 1/2" in depth and carry the Haviland back-stamp is Mark "I" - "Haviland - France", circa 1894-1931. The bowls are artist signed, "Sala". There are no cracks, chips, wear or repairs. Gorgeous,
