- Made in Italy
- Vintage: 1960’s (estimated)
- Details: Gorgeous basket in the Capodimonte style, with the traditional beautiful large roses in pink and yellow with dark green leaves. Many potters produced works in the style of Capodimonte in the 1950’s and 1960’s, but it’s nearly impossible to really date these pieces. Regardless, they are beautiful and a lot of work and detail go into making these pieces of earthenware. We can tell you that it is legitimate Italian pottery, it is stamped on the bottom as such and part of the bottom is unglazed, a key sign in true Italian pottery. The bottom is stamped with N and Crown logo plus the Capodimonte name and “Made in Italy”. This piece is heavy for its size, our price already includes the ever increasing shipping fees. We have two identical pieces, but as with all hand made pottery, there will be variations in tonality, imperfections and color placement. A perfect addition for any Capodimonte lover, a beautiful gift for mother’s day and makes a great decor item in your home.

Capodimonte was the most famous porcelain manufacturer in Italy, founded in 1736. After the Royal Factory closure in 1834, many of the “King’s” artists and modelers split off to open their own studios. By 1925 there were many Italian porcelain factories making Capodimonte-style porcelains, and using the famous “N” and crown. The Neapolitan “N” and crown were never trademark protected. Today Capodimonte is produced in the Neapolitan region of Italy, (and Spain, for a while), it is not associated with a single factory or maker. Several ceramic factories work in the Capodimonte style.
