Elegant Decorative CUP & SAUCER Set of 6 f rom Haviland & Co. DESCRIPTION: This cup & saucer set of 6 was produced in 1904-mid 1931 time period. The pattern consists of pink honeysuckle flowers with green leaves, petite blue flowers and white petite roses. The pattern is identified as Schleiger #900-2 named Honeysuckle.
There are lighter green leaves to give depth to the design. The cup has a wavy gold design at the top rim on the outside to follow the embossing. The saucer has a similar gold next to the scalloped rim.
This mold is identified as blank #13 which was introduced in 1904 after being designed by Charles E. Haviland to resemble the Ranson mold and blank 2. Both the cup and saucer have very interesting embossing. CONDITION: While this set is classified as used, the condition is superb.
The only exception is a 1/2 hairline from the rim downward on 1 cup. This is opposite the handle and is the cup shown in all the photos with only 1 cup. See photo #8 for the best view of this hairline.We find no nicks, chips, scratches, cracks, other hairlines, or repairs. There appears to be absolutely no wear to the colors and no crazing. The lack of utensil scratches on the set attests to the high quality of the porcelain china.
DIMENSIONS: The cups have a height of 2 1/4" with a diameter of 3 3/4" and a capacity of 9 ounces. The saucers have a diameter of 5 7/8" with a height of 3/4".
