This is a 19th century French Haviland Limoges deep bowl with the Old Blackberry pattern. The age is circa 1887.
The bowl is 4” high and 10 ¾” wide. The shape is slightly square, with indented corners that ease into a raised ridge on the interior.
The Old Blackberry pattern is a transfer, a multi-floral series, and different flowers in the series can be placed on any given piece, including the blackberries. This bowl has a large spray of blackberry vines along one interior side. There is a spray of roses also, and some other flowers and leaves. The colors for this variation of Old Blackberry are green, brown and blue-gray.
There are no chips, cracks or crazing.
The green underglaze mark is H&Co underscored by Depose.
The blue overglaze factory decorating mark is Haviland & Co Limoges inside a double circle.
The beautiful bowl is from the estate of Jonathan Steele.
