The tea set is comprised of. 8 trios, 1 sugar/slop bowl, 1 creamer jug, 2 cake plates. A wonderful find to have a tea set of this age so complete. And what a marvellous history of conversations this tea set must have had! From Queen Victoria's era to present day..
Generally very good antique condition commensurate for age (over 100 years old) and use. Some age related wear to the pattern/gold here and there and little spots, but the set still looks good.
A very old solder repair to one cup handle and two other cups do have hairline cracks. (no leaking) Close up pics provided.
The other five cups are good as are all the other pieces. Please look at the photos carefully as they form part of the description.
There are additional photos which can be sent to you on request or viewed on our Facebook page. Overall the tea set still looks pretty good for age... And can certainly still be used.
A lovely collectable from a bygone age. MZ Austria Eagle & Crown. The MZ Austria backstamp represents the Moritz Zdekauer porcelain works in Altrohlau, Austria, operating from 1880s to early 1900s. The MZ Austria stamp pinpoints the era this tea set was made.The company produced wares for export, mainly to the American and Dutch colonies before it was bought out in 1909 by C. Hutschenreuther and the stamp was altered to MZ Altrohlau. Over decades the company has gone through various buyouts, merges and European wars, but still operates to this day as Starorolsky Porcelain. The set will be carefully packed and insured (at no extra cost) before posting. Why our customers love us!
