This is a French Haviland & Co Limoges hard paste porcelain covered soap dish. The date is circa 1865.

The soap dish is 3” high, 4 7/8” long and 3 ¾” wide.

The factory transfer pattern is moss rose, which is a pattern of a pink rose on thorny stems with green leaves.

The lid has pierced holes so that the water on the soap can evaporate. There is no insert, just the bottom and the lid.

The gold trim is bright and gleaming and shows no wear.

There is an incised mark on the underside of H&Co, impossible to photograph as it is filled with glaze, but if you hold the bottom up to a strong light you will be able to see it. If you need more proof that the soap dish is made by Haviland & Co, I refer you to the book by Nora Travis, “Haviland China the Age of Elegance,” and on page 62, Figure 119, you will see the exact same moss rose transfer pattern on two toothbrush holders.

There are no chips, nicks, cracks or crazing.
