The Royal Porcelain Factory, Berlin (Or in German, KÃ¶nigliche Porzellan-Manufaktur Berli) is also referred to as KPM.
The KPM factory was founded in the 18th century by Frederick II of Prussia (Frederick the Great). Frederick the Great referred to himself as, â€œhis own best customerâ€. KPMâ€™s original goal was to produce 'white gold' (i.e. porcelain).
The company logo, a cobalt blue scepter, is stamped (or painted prior to 1837) on every piece and every KPM piece is signed by the painter. True to protocol, epocaâ€™s Berlin biscuit porcelain punchbowl is signed and dated â€˜J. Maentel 1876â€™. The blue scepter mark is on the inside of the rim.
