Truly a royal company, the Royal Porcelain factory in Berlin ( Königliche Porzellan-Manufaktur) was also known as the Royal Porcelain Manufactory Berlin. The KPM porcelain products are generally called Berlin porcelain. The KPM factory was founded in 1763 by King Frederick II of Prussia when he took over the factory from a Berlin business man named Johann Ernst Gotzkowsky. The king allowed the company to use his emblem, a cobalt-blue scepter. KPM was owned by seven kings and emperors until the abdication of Emperor William II in 1918.
