Along with Artistic Director Alexander Kips (1858-1910), Professor Paul Miethe (1864-1914) was known for the development of the neu-Rokoko movement at Berlin. See Erich Köllmann, Berliner Prozellan, Würzburg, 1966, Vol. I p. 96 for an illustration of the Deutsch-nationale Kunstgewerbe-Ausstellung, Munich, 1888 and p. 150 for an aquatint by Alexander Kips. See Vol. II, Tafel 243b for a similarly decorated pedestal, the form by Kips, the decoration by Meithe. Please note a nearly identical vase was exhibited at the 1898 Paris Universelle Exhibition. See illustration above.
