The painter Johann Heinrich Schröder was a master of pastel portraits. On the occasion of the engagement of Prince Friedrich Wilhelm to Luise von Mecklenburg Strelitz, Schröder painted a portrait of the groom. The quality of the material reproduction, the indicated landscape detail and the experienced implementation of the pastels with regard to the so natural-looking facial features are characteristic for his style. The young prince almost looks at us as if he had just spontaneously turned his head in our direction.

Berlin, KPM, around 1809 – 1813, the decoration probably
based on a model by Gottfried Wilhelm Völcker

“The bowl is a prime example of Prussian perfection. Having the right proportions to be comfortably held in two hands, it offers an elegant colour combination and breathtakingly precise porcelain painting. Perfection is fascinating. It is feasible with art objects, especially with material such as porcelain, the characteristic fineness and smoothness of which is a perfect carrier for enamel paints. I am captivated by the background colour upon which the precisely painted plant tendrils bloom forever. I also like the allegorical play between transience and immortal beauty – a vanitas motif modelled in porcelain.”
