I'm a writer and wish to use Haviland China in an historical setting around 1895. I'm sorry to be ignorant of the history (we have some Haviland--passed down from grandmother, etc). My question is three--fold.
1) Would an individual have Haviland China in 1895, Philadelphia, PA?
2) What pattern name and appearance would have been available if such existed.
3) What might the cost have been?
Your assistance is greatly appreciated.
