This is a French Theodore Haviland Limoges hard paste porcelain sugar bowl. The date is 19th century, circa 1892 to 1893.
The sugar bowl is 4” high to the top of the finial and 6” wide from handle-to-handle. This is a medium size sugar jar.
The transfer pattern is one of flowers in autumn colors: green, brown and a burnt red. There are brown stems and pale green leaves.
The blank is Saint Cloud.
There is some gold decoration on the finial, handles and around the base; the gold shows age wear. There are some glaze skips. There is a little bit of fading to the pattern in some areas.
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.
There are no nicks, chips, cracks or crazing.
The decorator marks are under the lid, in green underglaze, and show Theo Haviland Limoges France and Saint-Cloud Patent Applied For. The maker’s mark in green is on the bottom of the sugar and it shows as the three castle towers with TH and Mont Merry above and France below; there is also an impressed number two.
