SOLD ITEM 4463 - Capo Dimonte porcelain man

There are 3 images of this item.
Capo Dimonte porcelain depicting a man sharpening a knife at his grinding wheel to repair a boot. The Capodimonte factory was established in Naples in 1743 by Prince Charles of Bourbon, relocated to Buen Retiro (near Madrid) in 1759 when Charles became King Charles III of Spain, and finally relocated again to Italy near Florence in 1816. Until that time, Capodimonte ceramics, encompassing tableware and decorative statues/figurines, were considered very fine quality, but since then, they have been produced in varying degrees of quality; political upheavals, lost porcelain molds, and incompetent stewardships have taken their toll. To complicate matters, because the mark has never been legally protected, other Italian factories produced very good copies with impunity
