Nine bone plates made by Haviland and J.W. Boteler and Sons,
- Source: eBay
Nine bone plates made by Haviland and J.W. Boteler and Sons, Washington, DC. Research says that Haviland commonly sold china blanks and they were then painted by others. I believe this is where Boteler comes in. This was the company that made the Lincoln china for Mary Todd Lincoln when she was first lady. Measures 6 1/8 by 3 ¾ inches. No cracks or chips, but one has some dark areas and another is totally missing the gold trim on the left (see photo, 2nd one down). I have a feeling there are 9 because that one missing the gold was replaced. From an estate sale and at least 75 years old.
