Featuring foliage and spiral­-shaped ornaments, the capital originally crowned a column on the second floor of the palace. It was removed before the ruins were demolished in 1950 and taken to a builder's yard in the Berlin district of Pankow, where it was destined to be stored along with other fragments from the palace. However, this capital, along with other roughly smashed pieces, later ended up as landfill beneath a paved area, where it was rediscovered during excavation work in 1992. As the only surviving capital of its kind, it served as the model for recreating this structural element during the rebuilding of the palace facades.
