: I inherited an almost 12 place set with several covered and uncovered dishes and serving plates, cream & sugar, 2 piece gravy, 3-piece butter, etc from my grandmother. It looks like a pink aster pattern with the addition of pale blue scrolls.
: On the back:
: In red isTheodore Haviland, Limoges, France with Theodore underlined. Above the "Theodore Haviland" is a "W" encircled with leaves. Under the "W" is a ribbon banner. Within the ribbon is: Philadelphia" on the left, "Paris" in the center, and "New York" on the right. The "W", leaves, and ribbon are green.
: Under the glaze is "T M" I believe Mark M.
: Can you please help me ID the pattern? Dating the china would be wonderful. Finding out about the set will help me decide whether to sell or keep.
: Thank you!
There are many Haviland china matching services across the US that can help you to identify your pattern. Some are listed on the haviladonline.com home page. Usually, you will need to supply a photocopy of a saucer from your pattern. Another way to identify a pattern is through a factory number. Sometime these are located under the lid or on the bottoms of serving pieces. Help is available to you. If you need a list of matchers, please feel free to contact me.
