The KPM-Berlin, from courtly possession of crossbands and framed stands with plastic flowers, transitioning into a high baluster corpus with plastic rocaille handles. Adorned with a full plastic garland of naturalistic, indigenous flowers with foliage. Below, a decorative band festoon. Framed by rocaille, elaborately worked lid with flower knob. Polychrome painting with gold staffage. Scepter mark. Height 97 cm. This pair of vases is of outstanding importance for documenting the craftsmanship and artistic development. They were created shortly after the takeover of the porcelain manufactory Johann Ernst Gotzkowsky's by Friedrich the Great and the founding of the royal manufactory in 1763. Upon closer examination, a slight qualitative difference between the vases can be recognized. Here, it becomes apparent how successful the technical developments were in the manufactory in a short period of time. The vases still show influences from the faience field. In addition, the artistic development is also evident. While the upper part of the vases is still associated with the Rococo style, the lower part already reveals the early transition to Classicism. Furthermore, this pair of vases is the largest known pair from KPM so far. In the literature, the largest vases are listed with a height of 62 cm.
