Haviland identification is difficult as there are over 30,000 patterns and variations. Only about 6,000 have been identified and cataloged in the Schleiger system. Most patterns do not have factory-given names. Some received names from later writers or in common usage. There are four major “brands”:
1) Haviland & Co. Limoges (H&Co.)
2) Theodore Haviland, both France and New York
3) Charles Field Haviland (CFH)
4) the later, inexpensive Bavarian Johann Haviland which we do not identify.
Send us a digital image or scan of your pattern. Send your information and images to Pattern I.D. A plate is best. Only two small images, please, front and back. Cups, serving pieces, coffee pots, etc. are not helpful. You can also send a regular photo by snail mail. Ask for the address.
