This set of Old Paris style sugar bowl and separate underplate is part of a larger set (various items listed separately–see list below) from an estate whose owner received the set as a wedding gift in the 1920s. Lovely classic shapes with gold trim and a band in the iconic green associated with Old Paris china–no worries, though: the original Paris Green, which contained arsenic, was discontinued at the end of the 19th century. Some of the pieces in the set aren’t marked; on others the mark is very faint; where legible, it reads H&Co (Haviland & Company [Limoges, France]; later Haviland SA–see history below). See below for dimensions, condition and other pieces listed separately.

HISTORY (from online sources): Haviland & Co. was started in 1840 in Limoges, France, not by Frenchmen but by the American Haviland family, importers of porcelain to the US, which has always been its main market. Its finest period was during the late 19th century–a set of china was produced for the Lincoln White House. The company is still run by members of the Haviland family.
