The Arcadia Arkadia pattern was designed in 1938 to celebrate the 175th anniversary of KPM (Knigliche Porzellan-Manufaktur) also known as Royal Berlin. The famous Bauhaus designer Trude Petri designed the basic pattern form. The cameo medallions featured throughout the multi motif pattern were designed in collaboration with Siegmund Schutz. The pattern exists in a number of variations. This version has a wide pink rose band on white porcelain with most pieces featuring a fine, raised, cameo medallion.
