: We have an china service which is an "Old Paris" variety. It is a basic white, soft paste porcelain with a pink/salmon band on the outside edges. The pink is outlined in gold. Serving pieces have an underglaze incised "H" or "CFH." I am convinced these are early Haviland pieces, c. 1845. Would appreciate some mentoring from one of you who really knows. Also, always in the market for new pieces. Joe
Your description of your china sounds exactly like my great-grandmothers set. Have you learned any more regarding this pattern?
