  1. I have several pieces of this pattern. I like to mix them with Kutani Crane or Rothschild Birds. I have a particular fondness for china with bird patterns. How nice to have a collection such as shown here!

  2. Favorite tea cups are the ones that depict images on the inside too!

  3. The French don't get enough everyday credit for their porcelain these days. My great-grandmother passed down her gold and white Limoges, which was dispersed through several different branches of the family. I have a platter. These days, when people talk bout their "good china," it's so often English—when they even HAVE "good china," a diminishing priority among millennials. This set is an unusually clear, rather exquisite window to the past.

  4. Agree with Mike Rowe...again. I should just write "ditto" after all his posts. Sadly, many people don't care about these works of art anymore. We are a family (all two of us) that values craftsmanship of any sort, and seeing these beautiful pieces brings a smile to my face.

  5. We have lots of sets and parts of sets of china. Instead of just storing them in the cupboard we use the. 3 meals a day each on a different pattern of china. Even if you are having left overs they look different and taste better!!

  6. A couple Thanksgivings ago, we had pheasant, rather than a turkey. I served the meal on this exact Haviland pattern!
