The story of Haviland begins in 1841, when David Haviland left New York and headed to Limoges, a French city world-renowned for its production of fine porcelain. Haviland built a state-of-the-art china factory there in 1853, but refused to send his pottery to Paris for decoration as most other potters did at the time; instead, he decorated his own creations. Within two years, Haviland had established one of the most advanced china producing facilities of its time. Today, the Haviland name remains forever connected to fine American and French dinnerware.
