Approx. 6" tall.  Beautiful little flowers and lattice.  Does authentic always say Capodimonte on bottom?

The crown over N mark looks right to me.

True Capodimonte was made between 1743 -1759. There was a revival at a factory in Naples using similar soft paste porcelain that produced similar wares from 1771 until 1806.

After that in the 19th century various Italian factories produced their versions of "Capodimonte" and this continued into the 20th century and, I imagine, to this day. This was often of dubious quality.


True authentic Capodimonte never said Capodimonte on the bottom or "Made Italy". I imagine your pot was made in the later half of the 20th century or later at some anonymous Italian factory.
