  • Description
    An exquisite Berlin KPM (Königliche Porzellan-Manufaktur) rectangular plaque, aptly titled 'Floating Beauty,' originating from Germany and crafted circa 1890. This meticulously executed porcelain plaque exemplifies the renowned quality and artistry associated with Berlin KPM during the late 19th century.

    The rectangular form of the plaque provides a sophisticated canvas for the delicate portrayal of the subject, evoking a sense of ethereal beauty. The attention to detail in the rendering of the subject's features and the overall composition reflects the mastery of the KPM craftsmen during this period.

    The title 'Floating Beauty' suggests a graceful and almost otherworldly depiction, and indeed, the plaque captures a moment of sublime elegance. The subject, surrounded by an aura of refinement, seems to defy gravity, enhancing the ethereal quality of the scene.

    The porcelain itself bears the mark of the Königliche Porzellan-Manufaktur, a symbol of the highest standards in porcelain manufacturing. The plaque serves not only as an artistic masterpiece but also as a representative of the rich heritage and tradition of Berlin KPM.

    This 'Floating Beauty' plaque, with its timeless charm and exceptional craftsmanship, stands as a testament to the artistic prowess of Berlin KPM during the late 19th century, making it a coveted and cherished example of porcelain art from that era.
