It isn’t a complete set

This is a partial service of Haviland and Company Limoges (France)

porcelain with maker (green) and decorator (red) marks on the back that date this set to 1889 to 1896.

They made thousands if patterns, most with no formal names, on different shapes.

This set was not given a formal name.

The values are as follows;

$20 each for dinner plates

$15 per set for cup and saucer

$10 each for large low soup bowls

$45 for covered vegetable bowl

$20 for medium open vegetable bowl

$25 for large open vegetable bowl

$30 for tab handled cake plate

Some sites that I recommend for selling are Offerup.com (local), Varagesale.com (local), Wanelo.com, http://www.decluttr.com, Bonanza.com, Ioffer.com, Etsy.com, eBay and letgo.com (local).
You can also go to invaluable.com or liveauctioneers.com and search their directory for an
auction house near you and consign to them.
Please do click the stars now for this one (bonuses are also welcome!), it is very important for me
to get five-star feedback for answers.
