About the brand KPM Berlin
KPM Berlin - the Königliche Porzellan-Manufaktur Berlin - has an almost 250-year tradition of producing outstanding porcelain and china. Frederick the Great founded KPM in 1763, but the company's forerunners had already manufactured porcelain in Berlin beforehand without a royal name. The Prussian king gave the company its KPM brand with the famous royal blue sceptre and named it Königliche Porzellan-Manufaktur Berlin.
KPM Berlin: each piece of porcelain is unique
KPM porcelain is meticulously crafted almost exclusively by hand. The hallmark of the porcelain is its classic forms. The company deliberately cultivates the traditional manufacturing methods that have been passed down over the generations. Even today, each piece of porcelain is unique. The designs are applied in freehand brushwork and hand-signed by the artist. The famous dinner services made of fine porcelain come in the classic KPM Kurland, KPM Arkadia and KPM Urbino lines. Porcelain from KPM is at home in royal houses, embassies, on luxury yachts and in museums, to name a few. You can order all the Königliche Porzellan-Manufaktur Berlin dinner services from Artedona.
Dinner services from KPM Berlin: bridging the divide between individuality and luxury
The company philosophy of Königliche Porzellan-Manufaktur Berlin is rooted in Prussian virtue fused with high aesthetic standards - qualities upheld to the present day. Located in Germany, KPM Berlin underlines: "KPM aspires to pursue precision craftsmanship by hand, to create value and a variety of forms as an expression of individuality and luxury". And the Königliche Porzellan-Manufaktur Berlin seeks to continue to stand for "innovative ideas for cultivated luxury in the twenty-first century."
The company has long since ceased to be royal property. Following long-standing ownership by the state of Berlin, KPM Berlin has been fully privatised since 2006.
