A Berlin KPM porcelain tureen from the service for Prince Heinrich

Circa 1766/67.

A service with a capuchin brown rim decorated with "deutsche blumen" is recorded as having been produced for the court of Prince Heinrich (1726 - 1802) at Rheinsberg Castle, and this tureen was almost certainly a part of it. The masterful rendering of the design and the fineness of the decor both speak for an origin in such an illustrious commission.
