    Has anyone ever heard of a 7 point crown on a Capodimonte piece? I've spent hours trying to figure this out and I've only come up with the 5 point crown in all the references. I hope there is someone who can identify this item and what it was used for.

    Thanks so much!!!!

      There is a 7 point crown shown on this page under Capodimonte Mark Variations.

      http://appletreedeals.com/capodimonte-italian-porcelain-2/capodimonte-porcelain-history-makers-marks/

      "Important Note: The Neapolitan “N” and crown were never trademark protected. There have been many variations with different fonts of the “N” and different styles of the crown or coronet. Technically any porcelain maker could use the mark and claim to be Capodimonte porcelain. And many have.

      To be sure of the authentication, other factors must also be considered, such as; factory marks and back-stamps, even design and artist styles that are known and recognized."

      I don't think it has any specific purpose, and may have been a tourist piece.
