Artist/Maker "Capo-Di-Monte porcelain was first made in Naples, Italy, and sponsored by Charles II, who was King of Naples at that time, from 1743 to 1759. The factory moved near Madrid, Spain, reopened in 1771, and worked to 1834. Since that time, the Doccia factory of Italy acquired the molds and is using the 'N' and 'crown' mark. Societe Richard Ceramica is a modern-day firm often referred to as Ginori or Capo-Di-Monte. This company uses the 'crown' and 'N' mark." (From Schroeder's ANTIQUES ...) - K. Sheahan, 1/9/99
