Vintage Capodimonte Birds Italian Porcelain Figurine
Item Details
Description
Hand-painted porcelain figurine of two little birds on a small grass hill. Figurine is approx 3" x 1 1/2" x 2 1/2". The figurine is in good, vintage condition with some wearing on the bottom. Capodimonte porcelain (sometimes "Capo di Monte") is porcelain created by the Capodimonte porcelain manufactory (Real Fabbrica di Capodimonte), which operated in Naples, Italy, between 1743 and 1759. Capodimonte is the most outstanding factory for early Italian porcelain, the Doccia porcelain of Florence being the other main Italian factory. Capodimonte is most famous for its molded figurines. The porcelain of Capodimonte, and later Naples, was a "superb" translucent soft-paste, "more beautiful" but much harder to fire than the German hard-pastes, or "a particularly clear, warm, white, covered with a mildly lustrous glaze"
