Pattern I.D.

Pattern Identification


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.
