Offered for purchase is a beautiful Moritz Zdekauer (MZ) & CT Altwasser Austria Arts & Crafts Floral Design Teapot, Creamer & Sugar Set (Signed "H. Dietz"/c.1912-1920). The pattern for the design of the set is by Winifred S. Gettamy and may be found in the September 1912 issue of Keramic Studio Magazine. Keramic Studio Magazine was a monthly publication for the amateur porcelain/china decorator which provided designs, detailed instructions on porcelain/china decorating, as well as articles and photographs of competitions and displays between various china decorating studios and clubs. The magazine was first published in May 1899 and continued into the late-1920’s. We can provide photocopies of the page from the publication with the design of this item with your purchase if specifically requested.
The set is in excellent condition… no chips, cracks or repairs, although there are some minor surface scratches and wear from age and use and a fleabite on the edge of the teapot’s spout (the set is priced accordingly). The tea pot is 4 inches tall and 6.5 inches in diameter from handle to spout. The sugar bowl is 4.5 inches in diameter including the handles and 3 inches tall. The creamer is 2.5 inches tall and 4.25 inches in diameter including the handle. The bottom of each piece is marked as indicated in the pictures.
