This 40 piece porcelain coffee service was produced in France by Haviland & Co. Limoges in 1876. There is a green mark under glaze and a printed mark in brown.

A couple of pieces in the set have red, hand painted inventory numbers, 8-3303. The set consists of a coffee pot measuring 9 1/2 inches high and 8 inches across from the handle to the spout; a sugar bowl with lid that is 6 1/4 inches high; a cream pitcher 6 inches high; 8 cups 2 3/4 inches high; 8 saucers with diameters of 5 3/4 inches; 8 dessert plates with diameters of 7 1/4 inches; 2 serving plates with diameters of 9 1/2 inches; a waste bowl with a diameter of 6 inches and a height of 3 inches.

All of the pieces are trimmed and accented with gold. Condition: One saucer has a small chip which we have shown in the last photo.
