I was on a recent trip to Nebraska visiting the son and daughter-in-law. We drove over to Fremont, a cute little town just northwest of Omaha where there are several antique shops and other good places to spend time and money. Look what I found!!!
I love dishes!! This sugar and creamer is such a pretty blue and cream color with handpainted roses.
The mark on the bottom looked like this..........
Moritz Zdekauer bought the existing factory in 1884 and sold it in 1914. I thought for sure I had found an approximate date for my sugar and creamer until I discovered that the subsequent owners continued using the MZ mark. But, I think what I bought is from around 1900.
