Customer Question

My limoge is plain white with a plain gold trim. The mark in the back says Haviland France
Haviland & co. Limogea. Can you tell me anything about this style. I purchased this from a great Aunt estate. I beleive the dishes are from between 1914 and 1932. Thank you.

Hello,Please add a photo of the dishes and any marks on the bottom. Let me know their size and how many you have.You can add pictures by using the paper clip icon or the ADD FILES button. These features work best on a desktop computer.You can also email pictures to***@******.*** and put FORCustomerIN ANTIQUES in the subject line so that they will get forwarded to me. This method takes a bit longer, so thank you in advance for some patience.

I got the pictures this afternoon, thank you.The green mark is the maker's mark and dates to 1894-1931. The red mark is the decorator's mark that dates to 1889-1931. These marks fall within the timeline that you gave of 1914 to 1932 with this particular type of pattern with a glossy gold trim being more common in the late 1920's and early 30's. There are thousands of Haviland patterns, most of which did not have names at all and this is one of those.
