Great Antique 19thC KPM Berlin Porcelain Scenic Pipe Bowl Porzellan Pfeifenkopf
A superb porcelain pipe bowl made by KPM in the early 19th century. It is hand painted with a top quality scene of two guys sitting on a table playing checkers with a woman holding a baby standing behind the table. Lots of superb detail all around like a doorway with grape vines over it, a dog lying by the one guys feet and so on. The scene is surrounded with a gold trim. The pipe is marked on the bottom end across it so only two small lines are visible but it is also marked on the inside with the under glaze blue scepter of around 1820. There is also an impressed number 8 on that front stub. The pipe is in in as good a condition as one could hope for with only very minimal signs of wear. The pipe was used once or so I would guess but it is very clean on the inside.
The porcelain piece is 4.75 inches tall and about 1.375 inches in diameter. It comes with the rest of the pipe assembly which is in pretty good shape with a crack in the horn piece where the porcelain pipe is inserted. If you like my goodies have a look at my other auctions for a lot more top maker pieces like Frankenthal , Sevres and so on.
