Frederick the Great reigned as King of Prussia from 1740 to 1786. He was a fine connoisseur of porcelain and stimulated the growth of the porcelain factory in Berlin. This unglazed porcelain bust imitates marble. It was probably in the possession of Wilhelmina of Prussia, wife of the Dutch stadtholder William V and a niece of Frederick the Great.
