This is a set of five French Theodore Haviland Limoges hard paste porcelain dinner plates. The date is circa 1903.
Each plate is factory decorated with a transfer pattern of large roses. There is a cluster of roses at the bottom of the plate and more roses trail up each side of the plate on long stems. The roses are pink and white with touches of yellow. There are green stems and leaves, and there is background foliage in light green.
The edges of the plates have a green ground with a lacy gold overlay at six intervals. There are a few small spots of wear to the green ground on a few of the plates.
The plate I show in the second photo has a repair on the edge that I circle in red, and despite the repair there is still an abrasion in the porcelain on the left. Because this plate has a flaw, I priced the five plates at four plates.
The plates are 9 ¾”.
The red mark is Theodore Haviland Limoges France.
There are no other chips, nicks, cracks or crazing.
