FREDRICK THE GREAT PORCELAIN PORTRAIT (Item FRED 1-1)

DESCRIPTION: This most famous portrait of der Alte Fritz is by the period painter Anton Graff, 1736-1813. This is a re-creation of his work produced by the Rosenthall Company, founded in 1889. It quickly became the leading exporter of the finest and most elegant dinnerware and figurines of its time. Frederick II, 1712-1786, was known as Frederick the Great, King of Prussia, 1740-1786. He was also known as the father of the Prussian military. During his reign the military went from just another force in Europe to a true state-of-the-art world power. This wonderful portrait measures 9 " x 12" and the original frame is 14 " x 17 and about 2" deep. The back of the porcelain bears the imprinted seal of Rosenthall with the descriptive information about the artist. This Anton Graff study is exactly like the one given by Hitler to his pilot, Hans Bauer, in the end day of the Third Reich.

PRICE: $2800.00

FREDERICK THE GREAT PAINTING (Item FRED 1-2)

DESCRIPTION: This miniature painting on porcelain of der Alte Fritz is one of the most magnificent ones we have ever encountered and also one of the largest of the miniatures. This item rests on a wonderful rococo frame and stand. It is a fine painted-from-life rendition by Anton Graff of the Prussian King at age 70. This is an interpretation of the famous painting that Adolf Hitler gave to his personal pilot, Hans Bauer, in the last days in the Berlin bunker. Traveling as historic researchers through such places as Pottsdam and particularly the Fredrick-the-Great collections at Sans Souci and the New Palace, we have never seen better. The porcelain may be Meissen, but all marks at the back have been removed for some unknown reason. This undoubtedly was war loot and probably came out of some regal collection of Prussian treasures. It is indeed a museum piece extraordinaire. The frame is bronze with outer floral design, while the inner frame is silver gilt over brass with completely different floral and fauna trim. At the top is the traditional seashell as often used on royal appendages. The separate stand used to hold the frame upright is bronze with a wonderful panoply of militaristic gear, armor, helmet, eagles, ram, pikes, halberds, swords, battle axes, shield, horn for summon to battle, flags (standards), etc. Both the stand and folding upright are marked 398 and there is a Star-of-David design at the back??? There has been a museum-quality repair at the back of the standard or it seems to be. The frame is 9 " high from the top of the seashell to the bottom of the entirety and is 7" wide. The stand is 5 " wide at the widest point and the portrait is 12" high when mounted on its stand. This is a thing of rare beauty besides being a very rare and historically important treasure from German nobility and aristocracy. 

PRICE: $3,800.00

PORCELAIN FIGURINE OF FREDRICK THE GREAT (SEATED) (Item FRED 1-5)

DESCRIPTION: This figure of der Alte Fritz, the historically beloved German King is in perfect condition throughout. It is definitely of Meissen or Allach quality; "A Germanphile's Dream." It was produced probably in the 1930s by the old firm of Scheibe Krister of Scheibe-Alsbach in Thuringia, Germany. Founded in 1838 the mark is an "S" with two spears going through it. The Prussian King is shown seated in a decorative chair probably at Sans Souci in Pottsdam after the Battle of Torgau in 1760. In his left hand is a letter probably from d'Argens or Voltaire and in his right he clutches his ever-present cane. This is a marvelous porcelain sculpture with vivid colors and the historical likeness is realistically captured. This is a great addition to a first-class collection of Germanic relics. 

PRICE: $1,150.00
