Ceramic arts from Bassano, Italy has a deep history that goes back to the 17th century. It is very well known and highly collectible art. This city developed a thriving earthenware ceramic industry using their local kaolin clay, and multiple artisans who painstakingly hand paint every piece.
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.
