This awesome mid-century KPM Krister of Germany (now Rosenthal) fine porcelain double handle lidded food tureen is an amazing find and is in absolutely stunning condition. The tureen measures 27cm long (including the handles) x 25cm wide x 12cm high. The pattern consists of a series of blue roses and open flowers on a crisp white background with a gold trim. The makers stamp at the back of the porcelain was only in use between 1952 and 1965. KPM porcelain is without a doubt some of the finest porcelain produced in Germany and the quality is evident by just holding their pieces. There are no chips or cracks in any of the pieces and the gold trim is in remarkably good condition.

From the internet: KPM is an acronym for Königliche Porzellan-Manufaktur Berlin, which translates to “Royal Porcelain Factory in Berlin.” The company was founded in 1763 by Frederick II of Prussia, who bought the factory from its previous owner, Johann Ernst Gotzkowsky, in the wake of its bankruptcy. Frederick II greatly admired the factory’s “white gold,” a type of porcelain so fine and translucent that it closely mirrored the high-quality porcelain made in China. He invested large sums of money into the company and granted it the use of the royal sceptre as its emblem. He also commissioned many KPM porcelain objects to be made in the Rococo style for his palace.
