Being offered is an exquisite Antique KPM Berlin Large Reticulated Porcelain Basket Centerpiece, Made in Germany. This is an antique piece and is in excellent condition, with no chips, cracks, wear, crazing or repairs. There is a small area, on the interior of the piece, where the white glaze appears to be just the slightest bit more cream-colored than the rest, with several tiny specks in the glaze itself both on the inside and with a few tiny specks on the outside of the same area. Please take a look at the last two shots for a closeup of the finish imperfections mentioned, otherwise this piece is near perfect.
This handled basket has four lobes. It is meticulously rendered with reticulated sides. There is a pink ribbon draped over the handles and the interior bottom is decorated with four pink rose blossom groupings of the cupped Bourbon variety surrounding a central single bud. This centerpiece measures approximately 10 1/2" wide and 7 1/2" tall.The piece is beautifully crafted with intricate detail and has a wonderful footed base. The underside is marked "KPM" and signed with the deep blue cobalt Berlin scepter mark and the red imperial orb as well as a black painter's mark. There is a production number that reads 61/28 plus an additional number or two or perhaps a mark that I cannot make out. I have seen similar pieces listed as circa 1800's to 1910. This piece is in near-perfect condition and it is incredible that the handle has survived all these years. Thank you for browsing/shopping with us.
