OF ROSES, BUTTERFLIES AND GOLD TREES
ROCAILLE CHANDELIER ROSE DECOR

When the model master Friedrich Elias Meyer developed the candlestick shape and the ANTIQUE ZIERAT service on behalf of King Friedrich II in 1767 , he could hardly have imagined that his designs would live on in ever new designs to this day .

The five-armed rocaille chandelier celebrates the rose itself. Rose petals, rose petals, buds and twigs formed exclusively by hand, colorful rose decorations in the most fragrant colors such as purple, yellow and mixed tones on a delicate blue background always draw the viewer's eyes to new details. On the intermediate part of the chandelier, butterflies and insects float through the blue sky. 24-carat gold polished to a matt shine completes the overall composition of the work of art.

LANDSCAPE DREAM
FRENCH VASE

LANDSCAPE DREAM
FRENCH VASE WITH VEGETABLE HANDLES AND VEDUTA PAINTING AFTER CARL DANIEL FREYDANCK

Vases offer a surface on which to convey messages. Whether ideal images, dreams, artistry, political statements, progress - these and much more could be accommodated in the design of a vase. They were not just status objects, they were and are a medium for stories.

The master painters drew their inspiration for the motifs of the French Vase from the KPM archive, which contains an inexhaustible collection of colorful decorative designs for vases from the first half of the 19th century. The specialization of the artists is particularly evident in this vase, because it is only through the hand-in-hand work of decor and landscape painters that a perfect work of art is created.

GOLDEN FOREST
VASE “TALKING”

GOLDEN FOREST
“TALKING” VASE, GILDED AND PAINTED AND ENGRAVED WITH FOREST ANIMALS

The newly designed “Reden” vase impresses with its elegance, clarity and concentration and at the same time radiates calm and the highest artistry of the manufacturers. Count Friedrich Wilhelm von Reden (1752–1815) is the namesake of the vase, which was first made in the Berlin factory in 1799.

The surface of the vase body and base in the Royal Master Edition is painted in several layers with 24-carat polished gold. A surrounding panorama on the body of the vessel shows views of various forest animals: deer and stags, wild boars and two foxes harassed by a hunting dog in their natural environment. The animal figures and trees are partly drawn and shaded with brown-black paint on an unpolished gold background. Individual parts are engraved with the agate pen so that they shine brightly and thereby create a spatial effect of the scene: as if the trees and animals were partially illuminated by golden sunlight. The base of the vase, polished to a matt shine, is adorned with a gold band with an engraved oak leaf garland.

SENSUAL OPULENCE
VICTORIA VASE

SENSUAL OPULENCE
VICTORIA VASE, GILT AND WITH RICH FLORAL DECOR

The Victoria vase with flowers, landscapes and bird paintings on a colored background and rich gold decoration is a showpiece of historicism. The decor is exuberant, the flowers and colors are sensual, and the viewer wants to follow every golden, intertwined line in their mind. The design of the Victoria vase is something special: a look back at the cultural heritage of previous generations and a look forward to the future that we help shape in our artistic work.

ORCHIDS, GOLD AND PURPLE
ATRIUM VASE

ORCHIDS, GOLD AND PURPLE
ATRIUM VASE WITH ORCHID DECORATION ON PURPLE BACKGROUND

It is the story of the simple baluster shape of a floor vase, which was created by Trude Petri in the 1930s and continues to fascinate today. A baluster is a small, bulbous column, for example in a railing. Trude Petri's designs for KPM often seem to consist only of basic geometric shapes, but the absence of flourishes is the result of an understanding of pure design.

Petri's feeling for shapes, purpose and aesthetics combines everything that the designer felt was necessary to create something unique. The atrium vase has been interpreted and reissued differently over time. The change always took place in the decor; the basic form of the design remained unchanged. With the atrium vase with orchid decoration on a purple background, KPM is now adding a variant that combines reduced design language with sensual decoration.
