THE RICH PROVENANCE THIS KPM PORCELAIN SIGNED PLAQUE HAS IS FROM THE SAME GERMAN IMMIGRANT HENRY BUHL FAMILY - BUHL MANSION BUILT IN 1908 DETROIT, MICHIGAN WHICH STANDS TODAY AS A US DEPARTMENT DESIGNATED HISTORIC LANDMARK. KPM, or Königliche Porzellan Manufaktur ('Royal Porcelain Factory' in English), is Berlins oldest porcelain factory and Germanys second oldest.
It was founded in 1763 and continues to produce porcelain to this day. Centuries, KPM specialised in the production of porcelain dinner services, figurines, painted plaques, vases and more. They were particularly associated with the popular mid-18. Century Rococo style, and with its replacement by the more austere Neoclassicism of the early 19.Antique KPM porcelain wares from these periods are widely-collected and sought-after today. Centuries, KPM was one of Europes most consistently commercially successful ceramics enterprises. It also benefited from important financial backing: first from the Prussian crown, and later from the unified German state. It was because of its close associations with the state that the name KPM along with MEISSIEN would become synonymous with German porcelain, just as with SEVRES in France, Royal Worcester in England and Royal Vienna in Austria.
