The Hayes Service is known as one of the most important, imaginative, and extravagant porcelain service ever produced. Negotiations of the new dinner service began in 1879, in that a new president took office. By a chance meeting of Mrs. Hayes in the White House conservatory, Theodore R. Davis, an artist for Harper's Weekly, suggested it have only American flora and fauna, with each piece a different decoration. She liked the idea so much that she asked that Davis assume lead of the designs.
