I am slightly confused as the blue N mark with line above it suggests capodimonte but there is also a sticker Made in Japan. They are amazingly intact with paintwear and minutes chipping. Made of that light, chalk like, porcelain. Not sure what to call it. Sloppy painting outside the lines but it is beautiful. Not sure what to think about it. Any thoughts?
Just trying to decrypt this piece.

    It sure isn't capodimonte and looks Japanese . I would say it was a N for Nippon ? It is not a complete crown like capodimonte . I am no expert in pottery and ceramics so hopefully one will come along and ID it for you .

    Hi, thank you Manikin. I am thinking Japan as well but could not find this mark at Nippon. Will look again.
    I checked some articles and jars feel like chalkware and is light.

    No it is not chalkware but ceramic :-)
