HISTORY/MARKS: The American-born David Haviland settled in Limoges, France in 1842 operating a porcelain exporting business to the USA. In 1847, he established a decorating studio in Limoges.
He started producing porcelain in Limoges in 1865 and decorating it on site. His sons, Charles Edward and Theodore, continued the prosperous business after David's death in 1879. Theodore left to establish his own firm in 1892.
Charles Edward continued Haviland & Co. Until his death in 1921. In 1941, Theodore's son, William, was able to obtain the rights to the old Haviland & Co.
Marks and molds and the company was reorganized as Haviland & Co. William retired in 1957 and the company was carried on by his sons. When the sons retired in 1972, management of the company was turned over to the Cerabati Group under the name of Haviland SA.
The company remains in business today. It also has the red decorator's mark for Haviland Limoges. This mark has the pattern name, Trellis, under it in green. It is on the Louis XIV mold blank which was introduced in the 1950's produced in France.
