Expert Insights: The Papal Tazza by KPM

Created for Pope Pius VII by the special order of King Friedrich Wilhelm III as a symbol of peace and friendship, this incredible, monumentally sized porcelain tazza was crafted by KPM (Königliche Porzellan-Manufaktur). After the successful Concordat of 1821 and the Congress of Verona in 1822, the King ordered two similar tazze to be made especially for the pontiff. The mate to our tazza is currently displayed at Charlottenburg Castle in Berlin.
