Catalogue Note

The shape of this vase is inspired by a Nymphenburg porcelain vase created by Friedrich Gärtner. A Nymphenburg vase decorated with portraits of Prince Frederick William of Prussia and Princess Elizabeth of Bavaria was sent to Berlin in 1823, as a gift from the Bavarian court. This vase served as a model for the Berlin factory from 1829 onwards and produced in four sizes. It is likely that the vases of this Berlin porcelain form were made exclusively for Royal residences (Winfried and Ilse Baer, ​​"Die Münchner cup: Zur Geschichte eines Modells" ... Auf allerhöchsten Befehl, Königsgeschenke aus der Königlichn Porzellan-Manufaktur Berlin - KPM, 1983, p.17).
