* Capodimonte porcelain

is a porcelain produced by the manufactory of the same name established, in 1743, on the hilly area of Capodimonte of Naples, under the aegis of Charles de Bourbon, king of Naples and future Charles III of Spain. With his wife, Queen Marie-Amélie, they set up the Royal Manufacture of Capodimonte adjacent to Capodimonte Palace in Naples, a former royal summer residence. Thanks to this factory, the monarchs give birth to one of the famous Italian art forms. The king collects the masterpieces at the Capodimonte Museum. Capodimonte porcelain has survived time thanks to the creativity of Neapolitan artists. Porcelain objects from Capodimonte (signed with a crowned N) are recognized and sought after by collectors.
