Antique Capodimonte Roses Basket - Table Centerpiece - Superb Condition - Made in Italy
ANTIQUE CAPODIMONTE ROSES BASKET - TABLE CENTERPIECE - PORCELAIN - SUPERB CONDITION
In absolutely superb condition for its age. There is only a very teeny tiny chip on the end of one of the pink rose petals. I have checked this over very very carefully and that is the only flaw I have seen. Otherwise, this gorgeous piece of artwork by Capodimonte is in superb condition. I have taken many views/pictures so you can see all angles of this lovely piece.
It was made during the early 1800s as it bears the Capodimonte markings of a crown and "N" below it. These markings are on the bottom of this piece with it also being stamped "Capodimonte" - "Made in Italy". Capodimonte only used these markings on their pieces during the 1700s and early 1800s. After that time the earlier pieces of Capodimonte pieces did not bear the crown above the "N" marking.
It measures 7 3/4 inches tall, 8 1/2 inches long from the pink rose to the yellow rose and approx 5 inches wide from one side of the handle to the other side of the handle. Features a large Pink and Yellow Rose with blue forget me not on each side of the basket along with large green leaves. There are two pink rosebuds in the center and a pink handle with a sculpted bow on top. The basket is tan in color.
Truly a stunning and impressive piece of Capodimonte artwork.
