HISTORY/MARKS: The American-born David Haviland settled in Limoges, France in 1842 operating a porcelain exporting business to the USA. In 1847, he established a decorating studio in Limoges. He started producing porcelain in Limoges in 1865 and decorating it on site. His sons, Charles Edward and Theodore, continued the prosperous business after David's death in 1879.
Theodore left to establish his own firm in 1892 and was joined by his son, William, in 1903. In 1919, Theodore died and his firm passed on to his son. It remained in the Haviland family until 1972. The company known as Haviland Limoges is still in operation today. The green underglaze mark on this is mark #34 (Mary Frank Gaston's Collector's Encyclopedia of Limoges Porcelain, 3rd edition) which was used from 1904-mid 1920's.
This is the mark that has an underlined "Theodore Haviland" with "Limoges" in Script and "FRANCE" printed. The Haviland website Haviland Collectors also identified this as mark #p used starting in 1903. Two of the plates have the date, "1912" with the artist's signature.
