HI! I just got a set of handpainted gold "Haviland France" china, and im wondering about the history and pattern name. There are rectangular trellises around border, with cherry blossoms on branches growing between the "trellises". Handwritten on back, in gold,'Smith". On a different dish, handwritten in gold"Bertha Frere"...? Any help greatly appreciated!
