    Hello everyone, how old is this KPM vase. it measures 70 cm high and has a blue scepter mark, no other markings visible. IMG_20240304_131421156_HDR.jpg IMG_20240304_131511506_HDR~2.jpg

    fair old size then ?

    id hazard a guess at late 19th century, but could be as late as the 1940s

    im seeing these described as bauhaus

    Bauhaus (20th Century)
    During the early 20th century, the Bauhaus style greatly impacted the production of KPM porcelain. This style, which translates to “school of building,” emphasized the importance of the artistic (“building”) process and favored well-made but simplified forms. KPM artists adapted their objects to reflect these changes, creating dinner services with smooth, polished surfaces, functional forms, and minimal decoration. In contrast to Rococo, Neoclassical, and Art Nouveau pieces, Bauhaus porcelain appears pared down and minimalist.

    Would you post a close up of the mark so we can see it more clearly, @hunt2 ?

    You read my mind, but I still can't see the letters.

    Can´t fotograph any closer because the shine of the white glaze interfers with my zoom of my phone and stays blurry. But it is the scepter mark of KPM no letters.

    i think bakers is referring to this area,where there does look to be an impressed mark, or model no

    which could help to date the piece ;)

    the scepter mark of that type is used from 1945 to 1962. The 800 you think you saw is DÖR.
