These piece still have nice bright colors, shiny glaze and wonderful design. They are painted a soft red color on the upper outside rims, lower footed portions and cup handle. Gold has been applied to the raised portions and edges . The middle portion has bright royal blues, greens, and reds painted in an art nouveau floral design on a creamy white background. Black outlines really make the artwork pop! The inside of the pieces have soft white colored background. The cup has spider cracks in the inside but still displays nicely. IT IS RARE TO FIND VINTAGE Earthenware IN "LIKE NEW" CONDITION BECAUSE OF WEAR FROM USE AND AGE. TINY GLAZE FLAKES AND CRAZING IF PRESENT IS NORMAL AND ADDS CHARACTER TO EACH PIECE.
D. F. Haynes & Co., has achieved a high reputation for the variety of excellent bodies and glazes it has produced, and still greater distinction by the beauty and originality of its designs, both in form and decoration. The most original and perhaps the most refined and beautiful was the so-called Severn ware, first made in 1885. It marked "an era in the history of American ceramics." It was a fine body of a subtle grayish-olive tint. Parian ware was also produced in the same year. In 1886, the manufacture of a fine semi porcelain in a great variety of articles, both useful and ornamental, was commenced.
