Johann Haviland Vintage China


Fall is truly beautiful at Coloradolady. Any part of that state is an awesome sight this time of year. You may not see too much of it on Vintage Thingies Thursday, but you definitely will enjoy a world of vintage thingies. Travel right on over to http://coloradolady.blogsot.com and enjoy the sights.

B O O!

I have a 12 piece place setting of this china and most all the extra pieces. I fell heir to this from the estate of my stepmother. This is a remake of the original Blue Garland. It was manufactured in the late 60s and early 70s for sales promotions. This was distributed mostly in grocery stores. A piece was featured each week and also gave you the opportunity to buy extra pieces at a reasonable price. This pattern looks identical to the original that is stamped Bavaria. The remake is nearly as popular as the original. It was discontinued in 1973. You can still find it at antique malls. However, they can be a little pricey.






All this is packed away in boxes for the next generation.

I LOVE Haviland! My maiden name was Heavilin, so you can see my special attraction.

I love the shape of these pieces of yours. A few summers ago I bought some little berry dishes in this pattern in an antique shop.

My dad just gave me his entire set of Haviland - - - I'm sure I'll "show" it on here when we get settled and it is unpacked.

Oh what a pretty pattern. The person who receives this is very lucky..and they'll think of you whenever they look at it..that's the best.

I love these pieces and begged my mom to get them when we would grocery shop. She picked another pattern instead, with her love of golds and greens.
The next generation are in for a wonderful gift!
Hugs- Tete

That's my favorite china, and is in my china cupboard - as we speak! You are so lucky to have so many pieces. We use our seldom, but it's pretty behind glass! Have a great week. Sandi

Those are beautiful pieces LV. I had several sets of dishes that came in items from the grocery store years ago. Crystal that is used with my good china came from laundry soap. A wonderful idea. Blessings

What a pretty pattern. They don't do the china promotions at grocery stores anymore - now it's all discount cards. I think it would be fun to build a set little by little.

My very first set of china was Haviland circa 1863. All white but he mostly uses the same base shape, just adding different flowers at times. I love Haviland, I think it's one of the world's best when it comes to china. I being a collector, and having so many dishes decided to sell it to make room for my transferware, but still have my beautiful platter from the set. Yours is stunnning. and a wonderful blog, tami from the high street cottage

I remember when that set was sold in grocery stores. It is a beautiful set.

Lovely set. So nice that you are keeping it for your kids to enjoy. My whole house is filled with things that were handed down from my parents and my hubby's family. I have lots of his grandma's old china serving pieces.

Olive Cooper said...

LV, it is beautiful. You do not have any of it on display? I would have to see just a tiny bit. ♥O

Thank you so much for your sweet and kind words. We do feel lucky to have kept this house that my husband's Grandma loved, in our family. We are surrounded by a lot of her things and it is indeed a warm feeling.
