Haviland & Company was started by David and Daniel Haviland in 1838. Originally an importing company named, “Haviland China D.G. & D. Haviland & Company of New York. But David moved to Limoges, France where he unwittingly reinvented the French fine china manufacturing process by both manufacturing and decorating blanks at the same location. A third brother, Robert, joined the company in 1852 and the name was changed to Haviland Brothers and Company. The original offices in New York were closed in 1863 due to the American Civil War. The Limoges factory, owned by David and his sons, Theodore and Charles Edward enjoyed a great measure of success until 1891. At that time irreconcilable differences caused them to dissolve Haviland & Company. Charles Edward and his son Georges became sole owners of the company in 1892. Charles tried to revive the company and reopened with the name Haviland & Company, but the Great Depression closed its doors in 1931. To cause even more confusion, Theodore also opened his own porcelain factory, Theodore Haviland & Company, in 1936. He later bought the “designs, trademarks & rights” of Haviland & Company and restored the original name. All in all, four generations of the Haviland family made tableware. Other Haviland family members who made tableware included Charles Field Haviland, his grandson Robert, and Jean Haviland, Son of Charles Edward. All you really need to remember is that each Haviland piece equals great beauty and quality.
