About Rosenthal – Sanssouci ‘Elfenbein’ – Candlestick Holder
Rosenthal Sanssouci is one of Rosenthal’s iconic classic designs. The design was taken from the ceilings of the Sans Souci palace in Potsdam. Philipp Rosenthal got permission from Kaiser Wilhelm II to use the design. Sanssouci was first produced around 1880. It was a success for a while but was dropped in 1897. However, it was produced again in 1926 and has continuously been so ever since. Sanssouci has been produced in both white and ivory coloured porcelain, both plain and with a huge variety of decorations.
The name Elfenbein refers to the off white colour of the porcelain.
Before 1974 Rosenthal was produced under one label, afterwards Sanssouci was produced under the Classic Rose label. Sanssouci was slightly different before 1974, therefore we make a distinction. This item is made before 1974.
