Capodimonte: 300 years of excellence
By Larry LeMasters Capodimonte (sometimes Capo di Monte) is porcelain created by Real Fabbrica di Capodimonte (the Capodimonte Porcelain Manufactory that was owned by King Charles) that operated in Naples, Italy, between 1743 and 1759. In 1743, the newly arrived Bourbon King Charles and his wife Queen Maria Amalia of Saxony founded the Capodimonte factory on the grounds of the Capodimonte Palace.
