Sack the creative director

The esteemed KPM Konigsliche Porzellan-Manufaktur, Berlin is celebrating 250 years of equisite porcelain products with a collectors item: the Friedrich the Great Potato

Apparently Friedrich is responsible not only for establishing a competitive porcelain factory to rival King August's Meissen business but he also introduced the potato to the Prussians. Fancy that!

And here it is: 95 euro for the naturalistisch and 115 euro mit Gold Staffage

At what point did the creative chain of communication break? This looks like a polished poo!

And on prominent display at the entry of KPM, Berlin; Friedrick with raining poo-like potatoes.
