~ Beauty - the Pursuit's so Interesting ~

Collecting Limoges china is joyful because the French art is magnificent. Acres of beautiful china to enjoy! This abundance comes from the hardest, most pristine clay in the world - durability! The creativity of the art world during the Impressionist area was very special indeed.

Salesman's Sample Tea for Two


This is a rare Haviland Limoges Salesman's Sample. It is a rare Marseille shape. I listed it first as a sugar bowl and was emailed from Haviland International members that it is fact a waste bowl for a Tea Set. So this is really a sale for a rare Salesman's Sample.

Salesman's Samples are interesting. When Theodore Haviland started selling to America, he was a complete hit. He discovered American's liked variation. So the Sample's not only displayed the beautiful botanical quality of the art, but the variations of shape, color of the flowers, and the hand painted gold, but it fed the curiosity of the buyers for the variations.

This item is really a Saleman's Sample and currently the Salesman's Samples bring $500 retail for a usual table item - like a plate or cup.

This waste bowl is a rare table item. Meaning it is not the usual plate or cup.

Marks: The items in this sale represent an ensemble of variation. Two tea cups Marked H&Co L France - Mark H c. 1888 year. The 2nd mark is a decorator mark and indicates it was manufactured for S.R. James. The cups are on the Schleiger blank I.C.S. - B, from Book V of Arlene Schleiger, page 8. The cup's gold trim is Schleiger Gold Trim 26.

And the small tray is marked with two marks. It is also Mark H. Mark C from 1889. Indicating the cups and tray are 122 years old. The gold trim on the tray is very elaborate and hand painted. The closest mark to the gold trim was Schleiger 833, please see the close-up of the trim on the tray. It is beautiful.

The Salesman's Sample is clearly photographed. Mark I - 1894. 117 years. With a Rare Mark as well, imprinted by Number 4 indicating it has some hand painting. When Haviland stamps a number into the clay, a Haviland Factory Artist was used on the piece. It indicates the Marseille shape of the piece as well, with the imprinted swirls. The piece uses more gray shadowing, more brown in the outlines - shows more variation than the other pieces. The gold trim is Schleiger 20.

The Condition of the Items: Very, Very Good Antique Condition. There is only very, very minimal wear to the gold. I'd give the condition an A grade.

Price of this collection, displaying the sales power of Haviland variation - $410 USD.


Reticulated & Fluted Blue Poppy Serving Bowls - 2 - Haviland, Limoges

Bring Panache to your own serving table or your next covered dish. French Haviland Limoges adds unique presentation to your abilities.

$75 USD for two bowls.

Collectors look for the cut-work of Reticulated plates, these are more difficult to find, not many were made. This set is a Reticulated Serving Bowl with a Fluted companion bowl.

Condition: Antique Very Good. The only thing that sets it away from total perfection would be the patina worn into the gold on the Reticulated Bowl. The Fluted Bowl was not ever used. Beautiful intact Laurel wreath for the fluted bowl.

Markings: two, both from the 1897 era and from Haviland Company in Limoges, France. Mark 10 includes both marks. Approximate age is 113 years old.

I took a Haviland bowl with cut fruit and evergreen leaves (from my yard) as garnish to a covered brunch. There were a lot of dishes and the hostess remarked how beautiful my dish was and placed this at the front of the table.

Edwardians and Victorians loved the flower language, these flowers are Himalayan Blue Poppies, which is imagination. It must be imagination the buds are painted like roses!

Thank you for looking!

Life! Liberty! Freedom! And Antique China for All!

Just as beauty is one of the rare things that do not lead to doubt of God, Antique Limoges lends it self to Bi-Partisan Politics.

Looks like President Lincoln likes Antique China, he hangs with it.

And the last guy in the White House liked it too....

Antique China as art to inspire you....
