I know they were made in germany as the label says. Also in research, I have found the same label with the "Z" saying Zwiesel. but so far no one knows who the KK stands for?

Label does not say Germany. KK can relate to Austrian Royalty = Kaiserlich u. Königlich. And Yuogoslavia might also fit. Only German company that relates is Karl Klur but that did not make such pieces.

p.s. Zwiesel is a place for following that look at Poschinger, Theriesenthal and Schott.

The label implies the set has been sold in a German speaking country but nothing of the origins. The KKZ could be a refinery or even a retailer - my personal guess would be one lf the refineries in or aound Zwiesel, Northern Bavaria

That is fantastic news. i'll start researching those areas. I appologize for saying the label said made in germany, I miss understood my wife in saying the label is in german language.

Thank you
