Old Haviland China/12 place settings


Well I don’t usually do this, but this beautiful pattern of Haviland, called Varenne is a really old pattern.  Each piece is numbered.  I have placed them on Craigslist and should probably be putting them on E-Bay.  There are 97 pieces all together, not any scratches or chips, excellent condition.  12 Dinner plates, 12 bread and butter plates, 12 cups, 12 saucers and 1 oval serving bowl.  This set belongs to my mom.  She is asking $500.  I looked them up and found some pieces listed on e-bay.

The following are the e-bay prices:

The cup and saucers sets were listed for $24.99 each.

Bread and butter plates $12.99 each.

Oval bowl $38.99.

Did not find the Dinner plates on e-bay but they have to be worth about $24.99 each.

So you can see if you add this up with 12 of everything it would easily be $1000.00.

You can really see the pattern in these pictures! 

Does anyone know what it means that each one has a different number stamped on the back?
