Antique KPM porcelain figurine
This product data sheet is originally written in English. This antique KPM (Königliche Porzellan-Manufaktur) porcelain figurine is a charming depiction of a young boy, adorned in Georgian style attire, holding skates in his hands. A sight that brings to life winter joys of a bygone era. The young lad's attire is exquisitely detailed, featuring a vivid purple garb, a pale hat and a polka dot cravat. His cherubic face displays an expression of innocent delight, further adding to the piece's charm. The figurine stands at 16.3 cm in height, with a width of 5.5 cm and a depth of 6.5 cm. It is in excellent condition with no damages, a testament to the craftsmanship of the KPM artisans. Dated to early 20th century. KPM, also known as the Royal Porcelain Factory in Berlin, was founded in 1763 by King Frederick II of Prussia.
The company's origins, however, can be traced back to three private enterprises that were trying to establish porcelain production in Berlin from the mid-18th century onwards. To this day, KPM continues to produce unique pieces, with their logo, a cobalt blue sceptre, stamped on every piece. The figurines and dishware forms created by KPM throughout its history are appreciated for their design longevity, some having hardly changed their shape in over 200 years of production.
Porcelain figurines of different styles corresponding to each era have always been created under the guidance of the master workshop at KPM, with this piece being no exception. Please view all pictures carefully.
