Yep, roses again. *LOL* This plate is about 9 inches wide with gold accents along the scalloped edge and the verge. The mark dates it between 1880 and 1910. I have no idea if this pattern has a name. The closest I've found are ZSC#128 and ZSC#119 but neither has the correct scalloped edge or exact design. I'd love to know if you have seen it before. The company 'Zeh, Scherzer & Co.' was founded in 1880 and produced all manner of pieces including coffee and tea sets, normal household items and tableware as well as decorative porcelain. They produced the "Punch" and the "Orleans" series during this period. January 1907 and May 1908 they produced a series of items exclusively for Geo. Borgfeldt & Co. out of New York. After the mid '30's they reduced the tradename (and mark) to 'Scherzer & Co.' or simply 'Scherzer 1880' I'd appreciate any information you might have about this pattern.
