    Looks mid century to me - 1960s-'70s. The VK may stand for Volkskunst, which I see online in connection with Liezen Keramic, but I'm not finding anything definitive. Volskunst translates as people's art, or maybe folk art. I don't know if there's a company by that name or if it's the name of a line, or what.

    No offense, but I don't trust that description. I think 1940s is wishful thinking considering what was going on at the time (I think even late '40s is a stretch) and Murztal seems to be more a place than a company.

    But there is this from Collector's Weekly:

    http://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/175913-wiener-werksttte

    "I've seen a reference to:
    Volkskeramik Mürzzuschlag F. Birnstigl und Comp.
    (1911-1975)

    The factory was in the town of Mürzzuschlag."

    Anybody check Porcelain Marks and More?
