Description


Limited edition circa 1880 plate reproducing a design of two perched birds used for President Rutherford B. Hayes's White House dinner service, designed by Theodore R. Davis and made by Haviland & Co. of Limoges, France. The back of the 9″ plate bears a Haviland mark, stamped artist signature, and presidential eagle seal, along with patent number "11932." This distinctive pattern was inspired by the flora and fauna of North America; the original set delivered to the Hayes White House was comprised of 562 pieces with a total of 130 different decorations of American plants, animals, and scenic views. Haviland & Co. was permitted to produce the Hayes design for seven years. The patent number and date on the back of these plates indicate they are part of that limited production line. In fine condition.
