Perhaps ONCE in a LIFETIME would you ever find this EARLY 1876 SPECIAL GOLD DECORATED HAVILAND LIMOGES PATTERN SET OF 10 DINNER PLATES --- Made for CALLAWAY BROTHERS & DINGWALL of DENVER, COLORADO --- Obviously NOT USED and I just don't see a thing to call. SIMPLE but BUSY AND BOLD and GORGEOUS in a VERY FORMAL STYLE and certainly could be used as a SERVICE PLATE. Right at 9 1/2 in Diameter and note the HAVILAND-DEPOSE - MARK #G ONLY USED IN 1876. If you look in ELEGANT HAVILAND by NORA TRAVIS she shows several like examples... And most did not have pattern names in this early era.
JUST A GREAT FIND from the fine Estate of the Late THOMS MELOY of KNOX COUNTY, OHIO a well known Collector and Appraiser who saved the BEST and MOST UNUSUAL all these years. So still could be RESOLD RETAIL! ---- I LOVE MY JOB!The item "VRare SET/10 1876 HAVILAND depose COBALT & GOLD DECORATED 9 1/2 DINNER PLATES" is in sale since Thursday, October 1, 2020.
