Johann Haviland was one of the many famous Haviland family members, and the grandson of David Haviland, (David Haviland started the original, Haviland and Company in 1842).  Johan was the son of Charles Haviland, founder of "Haviland & Company Limoges".  Originally named Jean by his father, he grew up and moved to Germany, changed his name to Johann and started his namesake company in 1907.   His goal was to produce simple, affordable dinnerware for the American market, not just for home use but for hotels and restaurants as well.   Unfortunately this strategy backfired, at the time the economical price was seen as inferior quality, which we know today was not true.  His company was in business only a short time, from 1907 to 1924.  Johann sold the company to an Italian firm who finally sold the company in 1933 to the Rosenthal conglomerate.   Rosenthal continued to use the Johann Haviland name at the Waldershof, Germany factory until the late 1980s.  The Johann Haviland Corporation, located in Des Plaines, IL distributed many Johann Haviland patterns in the 70's and 80's in grocery stores where they were offered as premiums. Some of these patterns carry a Bavarian or Thailand back stamp.
