Wall mirror

Johann Michael Hoppenhaupt German

On view at The Met Fifth Avenue in Gallery 533

The exuberant amalgam of design details reflect the interior decorations and furnishings of the palaces in Potsdam and Berlin about 1745–1760. Similar feathery rocaille, naturalistic trellis-work, and the heron motifs are synonymous with the personal taste of King Frederick the Great (r. 1740–86), the monarch after whom the style was called "Friderizianisches Rococo."
