The small royal, electoral country estate, Caputh Palace, is the only surviving palace building in the Potsdam cultural landscape, which represents the era of the Great Elector, Friedrich Wilhelm of Brandenburg. Caputh Palace (built after 1662) belonged to Frederick William's second wife, Dorothea.
The original ceiling designs incorporating paintings and stuccowork have survived in nearly all the interiors. Most of the works of art currently on display - for example, lacquer furniture, porcelain, faience, sculptures and paintings - were part of the original interior decoration, or come from the estate of the Electress Dorothea and from the main palaces in Potsdam and Berlin. They represent the development of court art and the royal style of living around 1700. King Friedrich Wilhelm I later had the exceptional Tiled Room built as a summer dining hall in the basement of the building. It was covered with approximately 7500 Dutch faience tiles.
