[help] China pattern ID

Y'all did such a beautiful job on the china pattern question a year or two ago that I have a new china pattern question.

calendula_witch found some Haviland plates in a thrift shop. She's having trouble running down the pattern. Most of what she can find online shows the pattern extending into the flat of the plate, but these are on the rim only.

One of the plates in all its glory.

A closer view of the pattern.

The maker's mark, sadly blurred by low light.

Here is what the words on that last photo say:

Haviland, France

Haviland & Co Limoges
S&G Gump Co
San Francisco

With a bear, presumably to symbolize California.

Any thoughts on this pattern, or information about its history, would be most welcome!
