Vintage 66pc Altrohlau MZ Czechoslovakia/Austria Red And Gold Filigree China Set
Vintage 66pc Altrohlau MZ Czechoslovakia/Austria Red And Gold Filigree China Set. Condition is Used.
Beautiful set of Altrohlau MZ Czechoslovakia/Austria red and gold filigree china dish set. The design is a gold gallery trim with red stripe in the middle. Circa 1922 - 1945 based on the maker's stamp on the bottoms of each dish. There are a number of stamps on each piece, with the green eagle stamp with MZ Czechoslovakia being the main mark as well as an 8 pointed star with "MADE IN CZECHOSLOVAKIA" in a circle around it. There are also numerous 1 and 2 digit numbers stamped in gold, silver and purple on the bottoms of each piece.
The set consists of 6 complete place settings (4 if including the fruit bowls). Each set contains 5 pieces; a large 10" dinner plate, 7 3/4" plate, 6 1/4" plate, 5 5/8" saucer and a tea cup.
This entire set includes 66 pieces in the following;
10 x 10" dinner plates
11 x 7 3/4" salad plates
12 x 6 1/4" Bread and butter Plates
6 x 5 5/8" saucers
7 x tea cups
4 x 5 1/8" fruit bowls
12 x 7 1/2" soup bowls
1 x lidded Tureen
1 x 8 1/2" lidded veggie bowl
1 x 9 1/4" x 7" oval Veggie bowl
1 x 12 7/8" x 9 1/2" oval serving platter
It appears that many of the original pieces that came with this set have broken and resulted in reduced complete sets. Most notably, the cups and saucers.
The designs do show some extensive wear. Mostly to the gold trim. This set was well loved but has so much life left in it.
Descriptions are made as a best guess based on size of each particular dish (the bread and butter plates could actually be dessert plates, etc)
