30 years ago, my wife inherited a set of Theodore Haviland Limoges dinnerware from her grandmother. It has the authentic markings on the back of the plates, bowls, etc. On the serving pieces, there is an additonal marking stating "Set Larabe're" (accent over the "e". It's a beautiful set, and has a white background with clusters of French violets and their leaves scattered over the pieces. The serving pieces are highlighted with gold. Has anyone ever seen or heard of this pattern? So far, I have had no luck.
