Saturday, April 11, Identifying Antique Haviland Limoges Patterns - ll. Where do I begin my pattern identification?
First of all I look at the back mark. With the following knowledge - which may be considered over simplification - I can identify most of the Antique Haviland China that I come in contact with. On a rare occasion I need to turn to my reference books for an unusual mark. There are 2 marks on the back of Antique Haviland china - one represents the manufacturer and the other represents the decorator.
If there is just one mark the china was sold as whiteware and usually decorated elsewhere. Sometimes there is also a mark representing the store the china was produced for. This mark is the one most often found and dates to c. This was the period during which most Haviland china was sold. Again these marks are also found combined with store marks.
Also the rarely found patterns that were named and identified by Haviland appear with these back marks. This commonly found mark and its variations date from to the early 's. Theodore was the son of David Haviland. He dissolved his partnership with his brother and set up his own company. His pieces at first had only an impressed TH mark later to include the marks shown.
These back marks also sometimes include store names. If a store ordered a certain amount of china the store name was included as part of the back mark. Sometimes an exclusive variation a special border or gold trim of a pattern was made for a particular store. Later Charles joined with GDM Gerard, Dufraisseix and Morel. A back mark in combination with GDA is often found.
