Overview

Travis' survey of the history of production of Haviland dinnerware includes a listing of back marks and updated prices. She provides a brief history of the Haviland family, explains the process by which the china was made and decorated, and catalogs many patterns by Schleiger number (used by most Haviland matchers). The volume is thoroughly illustrated in color, though many of the photos were poorly lit. Travis took over the Haviland Matching Service in 1989 from a cousin who was one of the original Haviland matchers in the 1950s. Annotation ©2004 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
