  • Pattern:  Unnamed, Pink Roses
  • Made in Austria
  • Antique: 1884 - 1909
  • Details:  An absolutely gorgeous decorative plate by the highly regarded porcelain factory, M. Z. in Austria.  The design is simple, lots of gorgeous pink roses scattered all around the plate. But what really makes it an outstanding piece of decor is the embossing, the scalloped edges and swirls of gold gild all around the rim, it is truly a work of art!  The plate is stamped on the back with the M. Z. logo, this logo was used between 1884 and 1909.  In 1909, the company changed hands but kept the MZ trademark because it was so well recognized, they dropped the eagle logo for a while but a new one was designed and a new eagle was back on the 1930's and later pieces.  This company didn't name their patterns, and they had a numbering system embossed on each piece that was only use by them as some form of mould/style reference.  This is gorgeous plate, it is anywhere from 112 to 137 years old, a true treasure to own. There is a minor condition issue, please see below.

The M+Z Austria company was started in 1884 when Moritz Zdekauer Bank purchased it from Augustin Novotny, (who had owned the porcelain company in 1824) at an auction.  In 1909 the firm was bought by C.M. Hutschenreuther but they kept the MZ Altrohlau mark because it was so well recognized. The Altrohlau Porcelain Factories operated till 1945, when it was nationalized. The company still operates in the Czech Republic under the name Starorolsky Porcelan Moritz Zdekauer in the town Stara Role.  (Altrohlau, Austria is now known as Stara Role which is now in the Czech Republic).
