• Detailed Description:This listing is for four (4) Antique Haviland Limoges Luncheon Plates in an unlisted pattern on the Pompadour blank. Luncheon plates are often used as substitutes for dinner plates for smaller meals where the larger dinner plate could overwhelm the food. They are also used in tandem with dinner plates for artistic displays or large salads and sides. The pattern features heavy gold filigree leaves and basket weave on the rim and center with dark blue flowers, wispy green and red leaves, and small berries. The shape is the Pompadour Blank 14 featuring an octagonal shape with scallops between each side. We've been unable to find a matching Schleiger number. There are a few with similar floral designs but none with the intricate basket weave and leaves filigree.
The pieces are underglazed marked "H&Co" over "L" in green, mark style F which was used from 1876 to 1889. They are decorator marked "Haviland & Co. Limoges" in red, mark i, used from 1876 to 1878 and again from 1889 until 1931. The combination of the marks gives a nice date range of the set from 1876-78 or 1889. It's a beautiful pattern and will set a very elegant table or for tea.
