I have inherited some beautiful Chinaware from my great grandmother. It's a set of 8 complete with dinner plates, salad plates, bowls, tea/coffe cups/saucers and little itsy bitsy cupssaucers.. (called "demi-cups" I think??) it also has the serving platers and gravy bowl. The color of the china is white. The edges are gold and there is a small design of little arches painted yellow along are the rims. On the back it's stamped in dark green "Haviland" in an arch formation. Then, the word "France" directly underneath it. Then.... in red ink, it's stamped "Decorated By Haviland & Co." I in an arch formation. Then right underneath that.. also in red, it says "Limoges". THERE ARE NO NUMBERS ON ANY OF THE CHINA. There is no missing pieces and are in perfect condition (no chips or scrathes). We found this china in a very very old antique steamer trunk in a basement.
