KPM was the leading porcelain manufacturer during the Imperial German Period. This quality maker of porcelain is still in business today. It remains one of the world’s finest producers of porcelain objects. KPM provided top quality tableware to all of Prussia’s royal families, going back to Frederick the Great. Today we are offering a soup bowl, which was a part of Kronprinz Wilhelm (1882-1951) of Prussia’s personal service. It measures 9 1/2″ in diameter. It is beautifully hand painted, featuring Kronprinz Wilhelm’s crowned royal cypher. Wilhelm was married in 1905 to Kronprinzessin Cecilie (1886-1954), of Mecklenburg-Schwerin. This set was produced in 1905, the year Wilhelm married Cecilie. I expect it was done as a result of the marriage, and for the greater amount of dinners that he and his wife would soon host. The reverse of the bowl is hallmarked for KPM and 1905.
