Seller ID   Haviland Berry Bowls

Item: Antique ca. Late-1800s to Early-1900s Set of Five (5) Haviland France rare and uniquely “one-of-a-kind” artist-signed “Adda Bartow” China Painting-Painted Floral-design Berry Bowls-Dessert Bowls-Finger Bowls-Condiments Dishes/Plates

***Each bowl is oh-so-sweetly and charmingly adorned with individually hand-painted/hand-decorated flowers, garlands & ribbons of varying flowers motifs and colors (yellows, lilac, peachy-

mauve, lavender) with a glossy finish, and is further enhanced with raised painted (? Enameled) beadwork-like/beading-like embellishments.

***Interiors of Bowls contain raised vertical “ridging”-like enhancements just below the rims, and edges are scalloped

***Now for the interesting history behind this exquisite set of Dishes (and as an “FYI” - “Antiques Roadshow - Omaha, Nebraska” February 7, 2005 episode covered a similar back-story): "Back in the day" ladies-

of-the-house would special-order authentic bone-white unadorned china from a favorite maker-manufacturer of their choice and then either have their dishes professionally decorated upon their arrival in the USA or personally hand-paint/hand-decorate their newly acquired "treasures" themselves (a genteel pastime-hobby called "china painting"), with some ladies of course being more proficient and talented at this pursuit than others.

-Now, whether or not Ms. Adda Bartow was a professional factory-employed china-painting-painter artist of her time or simply one of the more adept and artistically-

inclined "ladies" of the day is uncertain, but her magnificent talent is undeniable as evinced by the photo below which, though in no way comes close to doing these fabulous bowls justice in depicting their breathtakingly aesthetic appeal, do afford some notion of just how glorious these dishes actually are! :~)
