Catalogue Note

A similar punch bowl, stand, cover and ladle, painted by Paul Miethe and dated 1893, is illustrated in Franca Dietz, Die Sammlung Hassan Sabbet, Blühende Zeit der KPM, pp. 396-398, cat. no. G 3., where the author mentions and illustrates the preliminary design for a punch bowl by Alexander Kipps in 1891. The author also states that it is possible that Kipps and Schley collaborated on modelling the punch bowl given the similarity of their styles incorporating Rococo elements.
With its monumental size and sculptural quality, this punch bowl would probably have been intended as an exhibition piece. Indeed Dietz illustrates an image of a similar punch bowl on exhibit in the Berlin Industrial Exhibition in 1896, ibid., p. 50, fig. 12. Another similar punch bowl is also illustrated in an 1893 photograph of the KPM saleroom on Leipzig street in Berlin, ibid, p. 46, fig. 3.
