Antique French Porcelain Sugar Bowl and Creamer with Pink Peach Roses by Theodore Haviland Limoges circa 1903
The Pantone color of 2024 is a warm, glowing shade called Peach Fuzz. Pantone describes this color as tender and velvety like the sweetly shaded skin of a ripe peach plucked fresh from the orchard.
Feminine and delicate, this trendy Peach fuzz color also happens to be the exact shade of this gorgeous French porcelain sugar bowl and creamer set made by Theodore Haviland. Featuring swags of pink and peach roses, and trailing ivy leaves outlined in handpainted gold detailing, each piece contains a scalloped edge and gold paint accents. Both a statement piece and a lovely neutral that blends well with many other antique and vintage patterns, this creamer set matches anything that features gold and white color patterns or pink and peach shades.
Made in Limoges, France in the early 1900s, this set contains all the hallmarks of beautiful design that the Haviland brand was known for. Making and selling dishes since the 1800s, the Haviland family bears one of the most interesting empire-building stories in the dish world. There was drama to be had both in business competition and in sibling rivalries all while racing to produce the most exquisite porcelain the world would come to know.
Over on the blog in 2017, we did an in-depth post on the Haviland family history. If you missed it, read all about this fascinating family here and see how Theodore made his mark on both this prestigious porcelain and the company's illustrious name.
Between the 1950s-1970s, Haviland enthusiast Arlene Schleiger began cataloging the thousands of different patterns bearing the Haviland name. Since many Haviland patterns were not named in the factory, Arlene devised her own numerical pattern names to differentiate one Haviland design from another. It was a huge undertaking - one that consumed a large portion of her life, but it was not in vain. Her work is still the standard catalog tool used by collectors today.
Thanks to Arlene, this pattern is also referred to as Schleiger's 145 pattern, a handy bit of information if you are looking to fill out more pieces in your collection.
