Capodimonte porcelain is porcelain created by the Capodimonte porcelain manufactory, which was established in Naples, Italy, in 1743. Capodimonte porcelain was made in direct emulation of Meissen porcelain. Capodimonte is famous for its moulded figurines and its decorative modelled flowers applied to cups and vases.

With this factory they gave birth to one of the most famous Italian forms of art.

The tradition until modern times:

The Capodimonte porcelain tradition endured thanks to the creativity of the Neapolitan artists. During the second half of the 19th century, the first handicraft factories were created. They were all family-managed. In 1867, Alfonso Majello, knighted "Cavaliere del Lavoro", founded the Majello factory, which continues to produce Capodimonte porcelain.

In 2012 the first e-store of Capodimonte Porcelain is founded by Vincenzo Castaldo through "Capodimonte's Finest".
