Haviland Collectors International Foundation is a non-profit organization dedicated to the study of porcelain and pottery manufactured by the Haviland families in Limoges, France. Founded in 1990, it is an international organization of Haviland collectors and specialists formed to increase the knowledge of its membership and the public-at-large regarding the history, production, significance and appreciation of the wares produced by various Haviland companies.
The vast production of the company founded in 1842 has led to a myriad of interests for the collector. HCIF members are enthusiastic collectors of Haviland dinnerware in 60,000 patterns and variations, stoneware, earthenware and ceramic sculpture pieces.
HCIF members have been responsible for many museum exhibitions of Haviland porcelains.
