The Chinese House is a garden pavilion in Sanssouci Park in Potsdam.
Trying to give culture to Potsdam, Frederick the Great built the pavilion along with other chinoserie and rococo structures in the 18thc as an adornment to his flower gardens.
An exuberant example of chinoiserie, this pavilion was built in the height of the chinoiserie movement and featured an abundance of gilded figures and ornamentation.
This was also the time following the excavation of Pompeii and a love of ornamentation was all the rage.
The interior features all elements chinoiserie-exotic birds, ornamental parasols, palm trees and swags of fabric to tie it all together.
The gilded figures are in various positions drinking tea .
If chinoiserie is a love of yours, this is perhaps the best example in existence!
