This is a set of 10 portrait plates made by the Altrohlau Porcelain Factories also called Moritz Zdekauer (hence the MZ in the logo).

They had several marks, these help date the plates to 1884 to 1910 when this mark was used. Most collectors refer to

this as MZ Austria porcelain as a shortened term. These plates had a transfer design of Josephine and Napoleon and were not hand painted.

Each plate has a current value of $20.00 for a total of $200 for your whole set of 10.

Some sites that I recommend for selling are,,, Ebay and
You can also go to or and search their directory for an auction house near you and consign to them.
