The Haviland Company was organized in 1853 in Limoges, France, by David Haviland, a New York china importer. After the civil war, his son, Charles, took over management of the firm.
This fabulous dinner plate is the "Flower & Seeds" pattern, the rarest and most beautiful of all the Haviland patterns. The floral transfer process requires the item to be fired four times during which time the transfer decoration becomes very soft and flowing unlike the usual transfer decorations. The poppies reflect a soft, dreamy, somewhat expressionist quality. The color pallet includes a combination of greens, browns and grays. The plate measures 9 3/4" across and is the gold trimmed
Schleiger #19 blank made famous for the Silver Anniversary pattern. It is marked "Haviland France", circa 1893-1931 company back-stamp and "Haviland & Co. - Limoges - Feu de Four" decorators back-stamp. There are no cracks, chips or repairs; near mint and perhaps never used except for display.
