Frank Haviland was a friend of Picasso and Modigliani, artists (Wikipedia) who influenced his work. I have mail from a Mr Stees, past president of the Haviland foundation, telling his story.
Frank's wish was to be a painter, that is how he became friends with Pablo Picasso, Modigliani, Deodat de Severac, whose works influenced his design activity.
Due to the nature of the lot the shipping method will have to be agreed upon.
