A little bit about the creator. David haviland, a china importer who partnered with his brother daniel, moved to limoges, france in 1842 so he could begin producing decorated china made expressly for the american market. In 1865, however, haviland procured his own factory and began producing porcelain blanks as well as hiring a local decorating staff to complete the process under one roof. The name haviland, according to warman’s antiques & collectibles edited by noah fleisher, is synonymous with fine, white, translucent porcelain, although early hand-painted patterns were generally larger and darker colored on heavier whiteware blanks than were later ones. The patterns were so well-respected in the united states back when they were new that brides with discriminating taste often selected haviland dinnerware sets as their wedding china, especially during the late victorian period, as noted by limoges historian mary frank gaston in her writing. This set contains 112 pieces of fine porcelain china.
