From breakfast, through dinner and beyond, Nora Travis shows in over 400 color photographs the beauty of Haviland China as it graced the dining table in the Age of Elegance and continues to do so today. A brief history of the Haviland family and their contribution to the American way of life is included, along with the production of Haviland china and its decoration. To enable the reader to identify patterns, many have been cataloged by Schleiger number, the current form of pattern identification used by most Haviland matchers. There are also descriptions of the many pieces and their proper usage for breakfast, luncheon, afternoon tea and a 15 course dinner. A listing of back marks and updated values are also included.
