This is a French Haviland & Co Limoges hard paste porcelain sugar bowl jar – the large size. The date is 1879 to 1880.
I am listing this jar to my shop because I know that some people collect the older Haviland factory numbers. The number on this jar is 2021-12.
The jar has a chip on the top edge of the lid, which I show in photos.
This jar is 6 ¾” high to the top of the finial and 6 ½” wide from handle-to-handle.
The blank is called the anchor shape, as you can see from the twist in the finial and the outlines on the handles.
The pattern is one of pink roses and rose buds, thorny stems, and brown and green leaves. There are small blue flowers too. This is an old piece, so the transfer pattern has outlines.
There is a little bit of gold wear, but not too bad for the age.
There are no other chips, nicks, cracks, or crazing.
I acquired a collection of Haviland and Limoges sugar bowls from an estate. The owner used the different jars as tea caddy jars, to store loose leaf tea, a different tea in each jar; the tea was purchased from Upton tea, so it was very fine tea I had to throw out from each jar.
The green underglaze maker’s mark is H & Co with a double underscore. The black overglaze factory decorating mark is Haviland & Co Limoges inside a double circle. The factory number is red, and the number 10 at the end is most likely the number for the size. These marks are on the underside of the lid and the bottom of the pot. There is also an incised 10 on the bottom.
