Antique Porcelain Haviland & Co Limoges France Blue Cornflower Tea Set Gold Trim
Antique Porcelain Haviland & Co Limoges France Blue Cornflower Tea Set Gold Trim.
Antique porcelain tea set by Haviland & Co of Limoges France. The set is decorated with a beautiful blue flower design. This is a partial set and great for replacements or adding to an existing collection. It includes a teapot (includes lid), creamer, sugar bowl, 5 salad plates, 7 dinner plates, 7 fruit bowls, 2 teacups and 8 saucers. The bottom of each piece is stamped H & Co L France in green ink and Haviland & Co Limoges in red ink. Some stamps are slightly different (missing one or the other stamp).
The following damage was found on a reinspection of this collection. There's some fading of the design on some of the pieces. One of the salad plates shown in the photos looks to have the most extensive of the fading. All other pieces look to have only some slight wear on the designs. There's a hairline crack in the creamer cup that ends in a small chip in the top edge. On one of the saucers, there's a discolored line on the underside (not believed to be a crack, but is being noted after reinspection). A crazing crack was found on the underside of one of the fruit bowls. There is also a small chip in the edges of 2 of the salad plates and a small chip in the edges of 3 of the dinner plates. The teapot also has a small chip in the lid as well as the top rim. The item considered to have the most damage would be the creamer cup and a photo has been added. If you would like photos of the damaged areas, please feel free to request the additional photos.
