- Pattern: Unknown
- Made in: Bavaria, Germany
- Antique: circa 1908 to 1918
- Details: Gorgeous and rare luncheon plate, perfect to display on a wall plate collection, primarily decorative use since an entire dinnerware set would be extremely hard to find today. It is by Z.S. & C. (Zeh, Scherzer & Co.), of Rehau, Bavaria, Germany. The pattern has pink cabbage roses with green leaves swirls around the border, with an open center. It has a very pretty swirl edge, rimmed in gold. Based on research, this pattern was introduced circa 1908. Lovely in a sweet pink bedroom or powder room. This could be the missing piece to complete your set, (if you’re lucky enough to own this set!), or even used as a cookie plate / serving plate. Great item for shabby chic, or French Country style.

Zeh, Scherzer & Co.’ (Z. S. & C) was founded in 1880. They produced coffee and tea sets, normal household items and tableware as well as decoration porcelain. Items made by the company also caught the eye of the Geo. Borgfeldt & Co. company and during January 1907 and May 1908 ‘Zeh, Scherzer & Co.’ produced a series of items exclusively for that company from New York. Their products were of high quality and beautiful to look at and even today remain a valuable addition to any collection. The company was changed into an limited company on October 7th 1910. They expanded their wares and had a very successful run but like many German, as well as other companies, they faced hard competition for lesser quality imports. They even reduced their name to Scherzer & Co. or simply Scherzer 1880, to make it easier to pronounce in other countries, but by the middle of the 1980’s, their sales were declining. In 1991 the majority of shares were taken over by the Allerthal A.G. investment company who saw the German porcelain market in a decline and eventually stopped production in 1992.
