This charming flower placemat is based upon a painting of Gottfried Wilhelm Völcker, which he created in 1847 for Elisabeth Ludovika Queen Consort of Prussia, wife to King Frederick William IV.

Flower placemats are amazing table decorations as the image of the royal flowers bring a touch of spring and warmth into one of the most commonly used area of a home - the dining hall. Bring a souvenir of royalty and history into your home with this wonderfully ornate designed table place mat.


Gottfried Wilhelm Völcker

Völcker was primarily a porcelain painter but he was also known for painting very realistic still images of flowers and fruits in oil and watercolor. He trained under the well-known porcelain painter, Johann Friedrich Schulze at the Royal Porcelain Factory in Berlin and was thereafter promoted to manage the entire factory for the period 1833 until 1848. Earlier on, in 1811, Völcker became a professor and was awarded membership of the Royal Prussian Academy of Arts in Berlin and subsequently joined the Berlin Artists Association in 1814. He frequented Vienna, Paris, and the Netherlands for workshops and study tours, and the influence of these excursions are evident in his artworks. He exhibited regularly with the Berlin Academy, but his biggest successes were his porcelain creations.
