DESCRIPTION: This beautiful set of 7 salad plates has the smooth rims. The delicate patterns consist of wild flowers, field grasses & gray leaves. There are grey ghost flowers and leaves to add to its allure. Each plate has a unique pattern, though they share many characteristics. CONDITION: While this set is classified as used, the condition is superb.
You have a full frontal photo of each of the 7 plates. The only issue is one small back rim flake on plate #7. See photos #9 through #11.We find no nicks, chips, scratches, cracks, hairlines, other flakes or repairs. There appears to be absolutely no wear to the colors and no crazing. Look in the photos to see this. The lack of utensil scratches on the set attests to the high quality of the porcelain china.
DIMENSIONS: The salad plates have a diameter of 7 1/4" and a height of 1". HISTORY/MARKS: Charles Field Haviland, who is the nephew of David Haviland, started his company in 1853 in Limoges, France to manufacture china for the American market. Charles Field in 1858 married Loiuse Alluaud, the granddaughter of the Alluaud porcelain family. In 1876 management of the firm was entrusted to Charles Field Haviland and the name was changed prior to his retirement in 1881. When he retired, the name was bought and has passed down through several firms until the present day.
In addition, there is a black overglaze circle mark indicating Charles Field Haviland as the decorating studio. Please view all pictures carefully as they are part of the description.
