The scalloped rim is painted in a broad, bold gold. CONDITION: The condition of this decorative set is superb.
We can find no defects or damage. There is very infrequent and very minor rubbing to the gold on the lower part of the rims. The back of one plate on the foot has some roughness. See the last photo: this does not affect the stability of the plate on the table.
There are no chips, nicks, cracks, other rubbings, scratches or hairlines. Please refer to the photos to see how classically beautiful this is. DIMENSIONS: The elegant plates have a diameter of 9 1/8" and a height of 1 1/8". HISTORY/MARKS: Charles Field Haviland was the nephew of David Haviland.
Charles Field in 1858 married Loiuse Alluaud, the granddaughter of the Alluaud porcelain family. In 1876 management of the firm was entrusted to Charles Field Haviland and the potterys name was changed prior to his retirement in 1881. The partnership of Gerard, Dufaisseix & Morel took over.
The whiteware mark was changed to have the GDM under the CFH. Morel ceased to be a partner in 1890.This item was manufactured by GDM (Gerard, Dufaisseix & Morel) at their Rue De Nexon pottery in Limoges, France. This is one of the successors to the CFH pottery. It has the green CFH/GDM backstamp which came into effect with the new partnership between Emile Gerard - Director, Jean-Baptiste Dufraisseix - Decorator, and Morel in 1882. This mark continued in use until 1890. This is cited in Mary Frank Gastons Collectors Encyclopedia of Limoges Porcelain, 3rd edition as mark #1 for Gerard, Dufraisseix & Morel.
