My mother picked up a few luncheon plates and a gravy boat in this pattern a few years ago and absolutely adores them. I'd love to put together a service for her and give it to her next Christmas. Since these are plain (aka blanks?), how do I determine the age/value of a piece that has only the mark "Haviland France"? (I'm assuming that this is the green underglaze mark.) Is it safe to assume that if it bears only this mark that it is from 1894-1931 (i.e. that it is Mark "I" and not Mark "Q")? Thanks for any info you can provide!
