     CGT, or French Line china is one I am not very familiar with because of the scarcity and limited online resources documenting it. Each of the two sets I own have the slightest different in size, shape, and pattern. From what I have found, the set on the left - bearing the "Haviland France Limoges" markings dates to post-war and was used onboard liners like the Liberte' & Ile de France. The "sleeker" set saucer bears "Haviland France, Jean Luce - Paris" and the cup "GDA Limoges France" in a Laurel Wreath. The cup is also from the France, but the saucer was from onboard the Normandie. Anyone wishing to learn more about the Normandie should visit, which has world's best collection of original fittings and china from one of the most beautiful liners ever built.
