This started with some dishes my guy brought home from an abandoned house.
Moss Rose china pattern by Johann Haviland. 6 plates, 6 fruit bowls, 6 dessert dishes, 6 saucers and 5 cups.
We’d heard of Haviland, but neither of us knew their value, if any.
After Googling around, I found the story about Johann. David Haviland, an American, moved to Limoges, France in the mid-1800s and founded the original Haviland China Company. David had two sons. One was John. There was fussing. The family had issues. The company split.
Some of this china today is nothing special. Mine was nothing special.
I saved the plates and fruit bowls for breakfast dishes. But what to do with the rest?
Bird feeders! Planters!
