porcelain (material), h 45.5cm × w 26cm × d 20.8cm More details

This teapot and heating stand were produced by the Königliche Porzellan Manufaktur, the porcelain factory of King Frederick II of Prussia in Berlin. The model, however, was older and had been designed by Johann Ernst Gotzowsky, the factory’s original founder. Due to financial difficulties he had been forced to sell his business to the king in 1763. The slender shape of the teapot’s handle recalls silver teapots.
