The Capodimonte porcelain manufactory was established in Naples in 1743, in direct emulation of the porcelain being produced at Meissen . Capodimonte is famous for is moulded figurines and its decorative modelled flowers. The first pieces fired by Capodimonte were produced in Naples, Italy from 1759 to 1780 at the Royal Factory. Modern collectors rarely find the oldest of Capodimonte pieces. They do find mid-century electric lamps, figurines of varying quality, carefully molded flowers and other decorative objects made during the last century. Most Capodimonte pieces are marked with some variation of the blue N under a crown inside a wreath ; many of them are also marked with factory marks.

The Capodimonte name was synonymous with the finest quality Neapolitan porcelain and ceramics from that period onward. The interest turned into a passion that led to many years of research and development before the Royal Factory came about. Once the formula for porcelain paste was perfected, many skilled craftsmen and artisans, both men and women, worked to produce fine Capodimonte pieces. Plates, vases, small and large bowls, tea and coffee cups, large and small jugs, sugar bowls, tea caddies, teapots, snuff-boxes, and walking stick handles mounted in gold are among the fine pieces produced at the factory in Italy.

Up for bid is an Exquisite Napoleon Authentic Capodimonte Porcelain Rose with 8 pinkish petals and 1 green leaf and a green leaf base. It is marked with the N topped by a crown inside a wreath. NAPOLEON is stamped below this wreath. This rose is appox 4" all around from its widest points. It is in EXCELLENT condition and includes the ORIGINAL BOX . I rate this a 10 out of 10(10 being the best) SO DON'T PASS THIS ONE UP ! This is a beautiful gift or addition to any CAPODIMONTE or Porcelain Collector. If you are a collector I MUST say this piece is for you. YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED !

Thanks for looking and Good Luck!
