This is a rare set of twelve French Haviland & Co Limoges hand painted ice cream bowls. The date is 19th century, circa 1888 to 1896.

The blank is shaped like a leaf, in an oval shape with an irregular edge, and a small open handle at one end. The bottom interior of each dish shows the veins of the leaf and is part of the porcelain blank. Each dish is about 1 ½” high and about 5 3/8” long. The blank is identified as an ice cream dish in the book “Haviland China Age of Elegance,” page 199, Figure 290, by Nora Travis.

The artist painted the dishes in shades of red. The color is more of a brown-pink red, not a bright red, so more towards a burnt red or brown. The colors are darker around the edges and shade to a lighter pinkish color around the bottom of the interior and exterior of the bowls. The undersides are glazed white.

The artist maintained the theme of the blank, which is one of leaves and foliage. Painted in shades of the burnt red color, each dish shows a different rendition of leaves, foliage, flowers, thistles and berries.

I show in the photos two dishes at one time, photographed from above, and then photographed from the underside. This way you can see all 12 dishes from above and below.

There are no chips, cracks or crazing. There are a few pinprick size losses of color on a few bowls. A few bowls have tiny pinpricks on the underside table rest, the part of the bowl that sits on the table.

The green underglaze mark is H&Co L France. The artist did not sign any of the dishes.
