Baltimore Rose - A Favorite Antique Haviland Pattern -
One of the most collectible and favorites among the many hundreds of Antique Haviland Limoges Patterns is the pattern commonly known as Baltimore Rose. Haviland did not name this pattern Baltimore Rose. Haviland named very few of its patterns. Many have been named by dealers and collectors through the years, such as Baltimore Rose. This pattern has been identified by Arlene Schleiger with the Schleiger number 1151.
Baltimore Rose is a gorgeous pattern featuring a spray of six roses hanging down into the center. These roses can be found in variations of all pink, pink and white, and pink and yellow - appearing on a variety of blanks and gold trims. Perhaps it is so favored due to the unique placement of the spray of roses - not common in most Antique Haviland Limoges Patterns.
Baltimore Rose Is Stunning!
