For your consideration is a gorgeous, 19th century, demi cup & saucer by Gerald Dufraisseix & Morel and decorated by Ch Field Haviland. This piece is in wonderful vintage condition. So please excuse the shadows and glare from my camera! It is hand painted with raised gilt around the saucer well and the lower part of the cup. This stunning little beauty has no cracks, chips, repairs or crazing.

Cup measures 1 716"H x 2 3/8"W & saucer measures 4 7/16"D

Please keep in mind that this is a vintage item and not brand new. Therefore, there might be some imperfections and that is normal for vintage items. I will mention anything major.
With all that said, please look at all the pics because they are part of my description.

HISTORY:
Charles Field Haviland retired in 1881 and the company became known as Gerard, Dufraisseix and Morel using the white ware mark GDM. The partners changed around 1890 and the company was subsequently called-Gerard and Dufraisseix and eventually Gerard, Dufraisseix and Abbot (mark GDA).

MARKS:
From 1882 to 1900 the mark could be in red, green, blue, gray, brown or black with the letters "CH FIELD HAVILAND Limoges" inside the a double circle which is seen in brown in the pictures above.

TODAY:
CH Field Haviland is the decorating mark (trademark, identity) of Robert Haviland and C. Parlon. It will always be stamped on the back of every item as proof of manufacturer, sometimes alongside the pattern name, artists number, designers name, or pattern range (eg Mozart).

Robert Haviland and C. Parlon have been using this mark since 1941 when it purchased the mark from a company called Gerard, Dufraisseix and Abbot which was derived from the original Charles Field Haviland company. Robert Haviland was the grandson of Charles Field Haviland.

Frequently asked questions about dwnmemorylnantiques

Yes. I will only gift wrap powder compacts and purses. Please let me know what the occasion is so I can select the right wrapping paper.
Please be careful when you remove the bubble wrap from your cup & saucer set! This is so not to break the delicate handle.
NEVER immerse your compact in water. Clean the outside with a damp cloth. DO NOT scratch off labels and residue from your compact! Use a drop of goo gone spray gel to remove it. DO NOT let the gel drip down when removing labels and residue from the mirror!
To clean the inside powder bed, remove any powder residue with either a dry Q-tip or a very soft toothbrush. DO NOT wet the powder bed!
Clean the mirror with any type of glass cleaner. Spray a little on a cloth and not directly onto the mirror. This will prevent getting anything behind the mirror, which could loosen it, as well as, ruin the reflective coating.
