: I recently bought a single plate, it has blue wild flowers on it in a random pattern with what looks like small pieces of wheat with it. all it says on the back is haviland & co, limoges and the h&c co over a line and under the line an L. Does anyone have any idea what this pattern is or if this plate is old or new?
: Thanks

The (usually in green as the Manufacturers mark)H & Co with a bar over L dates from 1888-1896 (sometimes 1876-1889).
The Haviland & Co over Limoges (if it is the Decorator mark) comed from 1876-1878/1889-1931.
These marks can be found in Nora Travis's new book,
"Evolution of Haviland China Design" (you can get it from Amazon- also listed on my book page).
To identify a pattern (there are 60,000 and only about 1200 identififed), I would suggest you take a picture of it and send it to one of the bigger Haviland dealers to identify.
