LIMOGE FRANCEVERY HARD TO FIND
ART DECO STYLE!SUGAR BOWL w/ LIDA note about Haviland's CALCUTTA pattern. When the Haviland artists came up with a new pattern, they would initially lay out the design on a white or other solid color piece. When they wanted to be really creative or needed another pattern, just like they would use various piece shapes, major designs, trim over and over to create more patterns, so too they used the "cream band" to add patterns. This is most recognizable on patterns like Paradise / Chambord, Blois / Eden and Coromandel and Ganga for example. If you compare those patterns between the two, they are almost twins of each other. The only difference, a cream band around the piece on one of them, the other, all white background. Note that each had its own pattern name. CALCUTTA is sort of a contradiction to that process. Haviland produced CALCUTTA WITH and WITHOUT the cream band, but maintained the pattern name, CALCUTTA, on both versions (when they bothered to place a pattern name on pieces) The cream band varied in sets from pronounced to very faint or negligible. Making it common to have a set of CALCUTTA that appears to be mixed with both, cream and white pieces. How to tell the difference? The "Cream" has an inner borderline, the "White" doesn't. For every pattern with a cream band, I bet there's a matching all white version with a different name. Go figure!!
Haviland & Co. is a manufacturer of Limoges porcelain. David Haviland was an American businessman from New York dealing with porcelain. While seeking out new business interests, he arrived in Limoges, France and by 1842, he was able to send his first shipment of Limoges porcelain to the United States. He was also key in adopting a new process by which to decorate porcelain pieces developed in 1873.In 1890, David Haviland's son, Théodore Haviland, built a very large and prominent factory in Limoges and introduced a variety of new processes for firing and decorating porcelain pieces. The Haviland company has since been overseen by grandson William Haviland, and great-grandson Theodore Haviland II.Haviland & Co. is still operating as Haviland Company, though the facilities are now modernized and now sell silverware, crystal, and giftware in addition to porcelain.
Haviland identification is difficult as there are over 30,000 patterns and variations. To make it harder, most patterns do not have factory-given names. Only about 6,000 have been identified and cataloged in the Schleiger system. For those "named" patterns, many pieces left the factory without the proper pattern name marked on it. Even when whole sets are purchased, you will find pieces in the set without the pattern name or for pieces with multiple parts, some of the parts may lack the pattern name or even the Haviland mark. Thank you Mr. Haviland!!THE MARK OF QUALITYThis fine china was part of an inventory removed from the estate of an avid antique china collector after she died and the the owners sold the home. This rare and very lovely china is about 100 years old. Most of this collection revolves around Theodore Haviland's early 1920's - 1930's china in the "PILGRIM" shape, all made out of the same shape molds, just decorated with different designs.
LIKE NEW INSIDEThis sale is for a very hard to find piece of Theodore Haviland china. The pattern on this piece is called "CALCUTTA". It is in the Haviland Pilgrim form. The bottom is marked "Theodore Haviland, Limoge, France" This mark was used by Theodore Haviland from about 1920 - 1935. This is part of the Hostess serving pieces, usually referred to as a "SUGAR" or "SUGAR BOWL". When evaluating dinnerware china, always remember, for ever 12 plates, cups and bowls etc., only ONE serving piece per kind, was made for each set. That is what makes these particularly hard to find and expensive.Sugar bowls are used for serving sugar and sweeteners. They are used to pass around the table as coffee or tea is served at meals. More formal sugars have lids to keep "unwanted visitors" out and for decorative effect.
This is a simply enchanting piece designed by Haviland & Company of Haviland Pottery in Limoge, France. The maker's mark on the bottom dates this piece to have been produced around 1920 til 1935. CURRENT RETAIL PRICE: $149.99 (EACH)When evaluating dinnerware china, always remember, for ever 12 plates, cups and bowls etc., only ONE serving piece per kind, was made for each set. That is what makes these particularly hard to find and expensive.Condition: This piece of vintage china is about 100 years old. A miracle it survived this long. I see no apparent blemishes.
