Q: I inherited three dessert plates decorated with roses. The plates are marked "Z.S. & Co., Bavaria" on the bottom with the word "Marseille" above the mark. I would appreciate any information you can provide about their history and value.

A: Your plates were made by Zeh, Scherzer & Co., which was founded in Rehau, Bavaria, Germany, in 1880. "Marseille" is the name of the series, which included several different rose patterns. This particular mark was used from 1880 until 1918. The company was acquired by Allerthal A.G. in 1991 and production ceased in 1992. Value of your dessert plates: $25-$50 each.
