I just found my father's set of china. I have absolutley no idea about the china other than it is the Blue Garland pattern and the stamp on the bottom reads:
Johann Haviland (arched)
The label is green. I have a couple of specified questons like
1. what is grocery store china? How can I tell if my china is grocery store china?
2. How would I go about finding out if my china is pre 1924 (when the Johann Haviland Company was baught out by Porzellanfabrik Waldershorf AG.)
3. If you know of a site that has alll the stamps related to the Blue Garland pettern, please tell me!!!
Any Information you might have on this company, pattern, or anything closely related would be immensly appreciated!
