Among the Neapolitan artisan creations that boast a record of excellence in the world, there is undoubtedly the Capodimonte porcelain, flagship of the Bourbon dynasty. In fact, in 1743 the Royal Factory of Capodimonte was founded within the Royal Palace of Capodimonte, home of King Charles of Bourbon and his wife Anna of Saxony, whose artistic production over time will become more valuable and famous than the French and German ones.
For over 250 years, Real Fabbrica di Capodimonte has been dedicated to the production of unique works, finely worked by the hands of the few remaining ceramic masters who carry on the tradition with passion. Elegant centerpieces and precious vases, design objects ranging from ancient to modern, created ad hoc and 100% handmade, to adorn homes and prestigious locations.
The porcelains of Real Fabbrica di Capodimonte are distinguished by the uniqueness of their mixture, soft and milky in color, resulting from the fusion of various types of clay that does not contain coalino.
The brand that represents them, that is the unmistakable crowned N that marks the back of each piece produced, symbolizes the sophisticated fusion between tradition and art, expresses in itself the spirit of a long historical journey capable of renewing itself in step with the times, preserving however the peculiar handicraft characteristic thanks to which every single piece produced is a real work of art.
