A pair of early 20th century K.P.M. Berlin dinner plates measuring 9.5" W x 1.5" H x 9.5" D., from the Neuozier table service of Kaiser Wilhelm II (1859-1941). Both of the white ground porcelain plates have a scalloped, spiral molded rim with a narrow scrolled and meandering foliate gilded border above an impressed inner basketweave design. The plates are decorated with a printed and painted iron-red gilt palette depicting three floral sprays framing an imperial crowned Rococo style scrolled cartouche bearing the Prussian eagle with an orb and scepter in it’s talons. The eagles decorated with the monogram of "FR” for "Frederick Rex” as borne by King Frederick the Great (1712-1786).

The Neuozier table service of Kaiser Wilhelm II was designed to compliment the dinner services ordered by King Frederick the Great in the late 18th century and were executed in the same iron-red palette. One of the services that may have served as an inspiration was gifted to General Wichard von Möllendorf and takes its name from the general. Originally ordered in the 1760s from Meissen by King Frederick the Great, many of the pieces depicted imagery from mythology. The molded shape of the Neuozier service is based on the fluid forms of the Rococo and was designed to act as a standard service used throughout the various royal residences. Most previous services having been designed for specific palaces or rooms. Examples of the Neuozier service are still in the collection of the Royal Prussian family at Huis Dorn in Holland.

To the back of each plate is the crowned cypher of Kaiser Wilhelm II, with a date mark, blue scepter mark of KPM (Königliche Porzellan Manufaktur), and an iron-red orb and "KPM” mark. The 1904 plate has a cypher in iron-red and blue date mark; the 1906 plate has both the cypher and date marks in blue. Decorative wooden stands included.
