Haviland Limoges Teacup and Saucer, Theodore Haviland France, French Limoges, Antique Limoges, Van Heusen Charles


Shipping to United States: Free

Luxurious, translucent, French Haviland Limoges graces the table. Its history is regal and dignified.
A mixture of French clay containing kaolin from the Limoges region of France created the light but strong teacup and saucer.

This antique teacup and saucer with its soft pink roses, green vines and delicate gold trim was imported by the prestigious Van Heusen, Charles and Co. The shop was a dealer in fine china, glass, earthen ware, kerosene goods, gas fixtures and more. The business was in Marble Hall, at 468 and 470 Broadway.

Marble Hall has not survived, but the Van Heusen family gave us two fine Albany buildings that still stand. The home built for son Charles in 1900 at 411 State Street is now home to the Rockefeller Institute of Government.
It is said that the younger Charles was friends with Theodore Roosevelt, and that he supplied his china to the White House, and that he somehow had a hand in the final version of the Great Seal of the United States.

The price includes free Priority Mail shipping within the US, free gift wrapping and free shipping insurance. We do ship out of the country with a small shipping charge.

Measurements: The saucer is 6" in diameter. The cup is 1.75" high and 4.1" from rim to rim.

This French teacup and saucer is in excellent condition. There are no chips, stains, cracks or crazing. We do not sell damaged items. You may buy with confidence.
