Hello

Haviland did not put pattern names on most of their china, and if Schleiger did not have this set in their books then it would not have their number.

What is it you are wanting to know about the set?

I am trying to date the set. I know Theodore Haviland started his own business about 1893 so the date is after that. The set. Belonged to my great grandparents who married in the 1870s. What is the significance of the number 1977 which appears on some of the pieces? All marks, names and numbers are in red. Just any info I can't find myself online would be helpful.
Antique Expert: Glenda B., Antiques Appraiser replied 1 year ago

The mark on the pieces is factory inventory numbers. Their system of tracking the pieces.

If you can send a picture maybe I can find a date by matching it to sets that might be in my china price guides.

Hello, my name is Glenda
.

It is very important to be able to see what the customer has in order to give a correct informed value!
.
Here are instructions for sending images several ways, you can choose which one best fits you , be sure it is uploaded to your computer,
.

If you do not see the blue button that states attach file at the bottom of your page here are instructions to upload images !
.
Click the link: for instructions on uploading images
.
http://ww2.justanswer.com/how-do-i-send-photo-or-file-expert
.
Or you may use this method:
.
Go to www.imgur.com
.
click on Computer
.
Select the picture file from the box that pops up.
.
Hit open.
.
Click on Start Upload
.
And then copy the link they give you (it will look similar to this http://www.imgur.com/xxxx) and paste it here.
.
Or:Send them like this: In an Email! This can take awhile depending on how busy they are at Just answer, they do forward them to me.
.
Send the picture to ,***@******.***, in the subject line put " Pictures for Glenda B in Antiques".
.
In the body of the message put , your user name and name.
.
Make sure to send these from the same address that you registered with just answer with , so they know who you are. If you send from a phone the email address on the phone you use has to match the email address you used to register on the justanswer site with.
.
Sometimes it can take over 24hrs, depending on how busy the site is. We the appraisers are not employees of the Just Answer site, we come to the site to answer questions, we do not work there. They get photos in from customers, they then send them to the correct departments ( categories, ) then they are forwarded to the appraisers. I have no control over how fast all of this happens. I will let you know as soon as they send them to me.

I am informed that you have had the the picture I sent for about a week now. What do you have to report?
Antique Expert: Glenda B., Antiques Appraiser replied 1 year ago

Hello

I checked my work email I use for Just Answer it was not there, I then checked another email where I am a customer like you with justanswer. They sent to that email, which I do not use. unless I ask a question myself on justanswer.

.

I will take a look to see what I can find about your set. The patter is not likely going to be found since it is not marked, and does not have any other name or number on it.

I will see if I can try to match it to any of the sets I have in my China Books and my Schleiger reference books. Even if the pattern name cannot be found the set can be valued, we have to do this all the time because there are thousands of sets with no names or numbers on them. We have access to data bases for just that sort of thing.

Hello

I received the images. Can you tell how many pieces are in your set?

Ask Your Own Antiques Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
Why do you need to know that? I was asking for pattern info. In any case, I have service for 12 which includes 12 teacups w/saucers, 12 coffee cups w/saucers, 12 dinner plates, 12 luncheon plates, 12 salad plates, 12 bread and butter plates, 12 cereal/soup bowls, gravy boat w/attached saucer, 2 lidded casseroles, 2 oval and 1 round serving platters.
Glenda, if you can give me pattern info, terrific! If you can't, please tell me so we can finish this "dance".
Thank you.
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
Just reread one of your previous emails where you said the platter is not marked, etc. All pieces are marked. All have incised "TM" and the words Theodore Haviland Limoges, France in red. Some have the number 1977 on them.
Antique Expert: Glenda B., Antiques Appraiser replied 1 year ago

Hello

I did not send any email about a platter. And no this set does not have a pattern name. So if you wish to contact customer service to cancel this question you can do so by :
