THEODORE HAVILAND "VARENNE" CHINA 5pc PLACE SETTING: Signed: Theodore Haviland, New York, Made in America, Varenne. This beautiful china is as timeless as it is elegant! A treasured pattern for your ultimate dining and entertaining pleasure. Your guests will enjoy your table setting and your obvious good taste in china. The first Haviland exported from France in 1842 ignited a love affair between the women of the USA and Haviland China, a love which still burns brightly. Haviland..... when quality is your choice!

The "Varenne" pattern features gently flowing scallopped edges. The crisp white background is tastefully accented all around each piece with a swag of trailing floral vines, featuring finely detailed pink rose flowers and delicate green leaves. Each piece also boasts gold gilt accents w each scallop meets the next. The dinner plates have recessed centers highlighted with a 1.5" rim, a feature repeated on all plates, the rims being sized in proportion to the plate. The saucer is not rimmed. It slopes gently to the center well in which the cup rests. The cups are round, non-footed and the handles are gold gilded.
