I'm not totally satisfied with your answer for the fact that you didn't even look up the pattern name - but maybe I was expecting too much.
Expert:  Rarewares replied 1 year ago.
I should have explained that it was common for Limoges not to have pattern names. Some did and some did not, I did look for this pattern through 21 pages of Haviland patterns and did not find it before giving your estimate.

I actually have one more question - why does your page state that you will charge $5 and if you're satisfied with the answer the additional $33 will be charged - but in actuality $38 was charge? Thank you.
