Hello there! I inherited a set of china form my mother in law. I have identified the pattern as Rhineland. The back mark on all the pieces is black with gold lettering slanted like a triangle that says Johann Haviland. Underneath that is a "crown" symbol. And under that is Bavaria Germany, with the Bavaria being on top and Germany underneath. Can anyone tell me if this is authentic Johann Haviland? Any help would be greatly appreciated!
It kind of looks like this:
(the letters are angled like this)
JOHANN /\ HAVILAND
There is also a little l between the Bavaria and Germany.
Feel free to e-mail me at PrincessMac2@aol.com with any information regarding this. Thanks!!
