This impressive, informative book portrays the progress of Haviland china in form and decoration from the formative years in the 1840s-1860s, through the development of porcelain manufacturing in the 1870s-1880s, and on into the twentieth century, which brought many changes to the Haviland companies. Over 570 beautiful color photographs show the progression of patterns and style. The early multifloral and botanical designs, the Japanese influence, the Impressionist, Art Nouveau, and Art Deco styles, and recent patterns and shapes all have made Haviland china a porcelain of importance today. To enable the reader to identify patterns, many are cataloged by Schleiger numbers, the form of pattern identification preferred by most Haviland matchers. Also included are sections on setting a proper table, pieces that made up a complete set, and interesting stories about famous and influential people who ate from Haviland china.A listing of back marks and current market prices is included.
