Capodimonte Porcelain is widely considered to be among the finest Italian porcelain products in the world. From intricate figures to floral designs, Capodimonte Porcelain brings craftsmanship and artistry together. Dating back to the early 18th century, Capodimonte Porcelain began in the Naples area under the efforts of then King, Charles the Seventh.Why is Capodimonte Porcelain so popular? First of all, the manufacture of any type of porcelain requires incredible skill and patience. At its most basic, it is a type of ceramic that is baked at extreme temperatures to harden it. While in its softer state, it is extremely malleable and can therefore be used for sculpting. Nevertheless, the composition of porcelain is crucial to the quality of each piece, as it will determine the type of colors that can be used and how fragile the item will be.
