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.
