Catalogue Note

Karl Friedrich Schinkel was commissioned by Princess Marianne of Prussia and her husband, Prince Albrecht of Prussia, to design the Castle Kamenz, located in Silesia, in 1838. With its approximately one hundred rooms, this was Schinkel's last castle project, before his death three years later in 1841. The construction continued sporadically as it was interrupted several times until 1873, first in 1844 due to the separation of Princess Maria and Prince Albert, and then again in 1866 due to the Prussian-Austrian war. It is probable that the vase commemorates the conclusion of the construction in in 1873.
