    Upon closer inspection i can faintly see there are letters above the crown stamp. It looks like it's maybe 2 seperate words. It looks like the 1st word starts with an SH and the 2nd word starts with possibly an R or K.. I know these are post 1920 marks. I just thought MAYBE someone on here might be able to ID this factory stamp for me??? any help greatly appreciated!!!

      This isn't actually Nippon. You see Nippon contracted others to produce their products and this is one of them. The fact it says made in Italy should tell you that. Additionally the words "Made In" means it was made after the tariff act went into effect which requires the wording "Made In". There is a large online database of all Nippon watermarks you can check. Although I question this being a licensed Nippon item.

      tharless62, Beautiful. :-)

      I don't know that it's 'genuine,' but that looks a bit like a Capodimonte mark (I think the little crown has too many 'spikes' on it):

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

      That word right under the crown looks like "CAPODIMONTE," and as fhrjr2 has already pointed out, it does say "MADE IN ITALY" at the very bottom.

      OK, I'm not paying sufficient attention. You posted this under the "Capodimonte Figurines" catagory, but neither your post title nor the description mentioned anything about Capodimonte, so I initially missed it. };-)

      Sorry, I can't make out any of the writing above the crown.

      tharless62, The history of Capodimonte is complicated:

      *snip*

      The "N" mark of Capodimonte dates from the Royal Manufacturer of Capodimonte in Naples, Italy, which is often reported to have continued until 1806. The history I read made a good case for the Capodimonte Royal Naples factory shutting in 1799 in reality.

      In fact, the actual history of this early period is a complex mix of progress and destruction, rebuilding and mixed patronage.

      Despite these events, the porcelain production of this original period was some of the finest ever to have come out of Europe, and the factory was subject to turbulent and complex socio-economic influences of the time.

      The mark represents the N of Naples, also conveniently representing the initial of the conqueror of this region Napoleon Boneparte. The history of ownership after the French military occupation is too complex to explain here, safe to say that after the superb early period (mainly 1759 to 1780) the N mark did not really apply to one Neapolitan factory or ownership, and therefore was not a protected trade name, as say Meissen in Germany with their various protected marks.

      As a result, unlike the Meissen company which was a recognised firm with a recognised history and lineage of ownership and protected trademarking, and which regularly protected it's marks with legal action, the Capo di Monte 'N' mark, became free for anyone and his dog to use.
