Haviland Collectors International Foundation, founded in 1990, is a worldwide organization of people dedicated to the collecting and study of porcelain and pottery produced by the Haviland families in France and America. There are members who are seeking pieces to complete the dinnerware set from Grandma and those searching for exotic porcelain and pottery items. Informative articles are printed in the Haviland Quarterly. HCIF maintains a variety of publications helpful to the newcomer as well as the advanced collector. A national annual conference is held, as are regional gatherings. Exhibitions are promoted, scholarships are awarded, and research is encouraged through the existence of Haviland Collectors International Educational Foundation.
