Event Title: The Gilded Age of Haviland China
Event Description: In the early 19th century, Americans looked to Europe when purchasing china. When importer David Haviland no longer could satisfy his customers' tastes for embellished fine china, good-old American ingenuity came into play. Haviland built his own factory in Limoges, France, to turn out the finest china in the world with artistic flourishes to satisfy his U.S. customers. Numerous examples of some of the earliest pieces of Haviland China (1850-1890) are on display in this unique exhibit sponsored by the Randolph J. & Estelle M. Dorn Foundation.
