: I have a partial set (service for 8) of Haviland in the Florence pattern (Sch. #549). The back stamp says Haviland over France, with a single underline, in green and Haviland & Co. over Limoges in red. Anyone who has any pieces of this pattern, please let me know. I need 8 bread and butter plates, 1 berry dish, 1 salad plate, 8 soup bowls, a butter plate (with cover) and it would be nice to have a large serving bowl.
I forgot to ask: does anyone have any idea when this set was made? (The person I got it from claimed it was at least 100 years old because of the set's history in his family.) Also, why is there another Haviland pattern also called "florence" which is not even remotely similar to this one? Which came first? Thank you for any help you can provide.
