Description

She's for real.
First - Porcelain: It is hard, impermeable (even before glazing), white, translucent and resonant. / Lusterware: pottery with an irridescent metallic sheen in the glaze.
The Crown, with “N” underneath: The original manufacturer of Capodimonte porcelain was the Royal Factory, built in “The Royal Wood of Capo-di-Monte” in Naples. After the Royal Factory closure in 1834, many of the King’s artists and modelers split off to open their own studios. By 1925 there were many Italian porcelain factories making Capodimonte-style porcelains, and using the famous “N” and crown. A select number are in circulation and available, still highly valued by collectors - if the craftsmanship is of high caliber, as mine clearly is.
The chart and timeline of the pottery mark - I provide in Picture #5 - my mark, on the chart, exists at the bottom left, second figure [making this mark following the line of the Royal Factory artists]. My mark has the Capodimonte word underneath the 'N', 'Made in Italy" underneath.

Second, a most prestigious logos among fans of refined luxury.
Porcelain does not lose its value to collectors. This art form is in no way inferior to the original artists and King's modelers of 300 years ago. This is the reason it is valued so much.
Alas, this Lady could easily belong in The Metropolitan Museum of Art. The only ones to top my pretty Lady are the all-silver or all-gold centerpieces; some are soup tureens. These gold or silver prizes in art, start at estimated, $20,000; and I've seen a silver tureen [considered a centerpiece for its outlandish looks] priced, $125,000.

Third, ...and the roses...the roses...are the best you will ever find. True gold, you gotta know. The pedals of the golden rim melt and drip downwards; with stems containing thorns on them [you can literally get pricked by these thorns; they are that true-to-form]. What craftsmanship! / Did I mention, the gold along the edges sparkle from any angle you're standing at, with the lights on or off.
Glorious.

And now, I will go into my price; I know this is a necessity...for the public (to be able to swallow). I get it. I get it. Three reasons, my loves:
a) I just pulled her out for another inspection of any damage I may have missed. And again, no damage. Price worthy.
b) The stamp on her bowl's belly is a clearer version of the: "Made in Italy". This means she is more price worthy...as officially a porcelain piece, made in the region of the Royal Factory, from a decendent of the old world of these artists. Exquisitely, extremely valuable. More - singularly accessible [on the market, now / a rare opportunity!]. Rare my fine friends, indeed.
3) Now. The Golden Rule of Shopping = she is the best looking.
Of all.

If there is teeny tiny damage to this Wondergirl, I cannot see it. I had thought that there were chips on the undersides of the dripping roses, but it turns out, the artist had to chip the porcelain to accomplish the angle of rose pedal. Even at the center-front, middle - the long stems that go directly horizontal - which end with beginner roses coming from the long stems, it feels like the tip of roses are chipped, but there is no gold paint missing; that is the artists' chip-molding of the rose. / Seems to be missing paint to left side, center, of the left side stem. - Not. It is the backside of a thorn, and there seems to be no missing paint, just no paint, in that 1/3 inch spot. / it is that the artist used a very thin paint brush, and you can see throughout the bowl that this occurs...his dragging the paint brush and either missing -a tiny spot- or running thru as a missed spot.

As far as the price, you would be hard pressed to find this art form at the best estate sales or better autions [which is the only place your gonna even possibly get her level of beauty. I've looked. The others are not as pretty...just more elaborate. (So!)] And so my point is – know, that if you, most exclusively, now own an art form that is of unequaled talent, old-world style...who? Who is doing these centerpieces or soup tureens, these days/on such a grand scale; screaming Italian, no less. A birthplace of art, Renaissance, and originality; unequaled to this day! Anyone will admit that. Extremely rare and, you will find now, possibly...may...be stolen by [certain] neighbors. You watch. You'll see.
It is the size of this Show Stopper that puts her, also, into that other realm of 'pretty'. Because I have seen [bad versions; incapable of being - not as floral, swirly body!!, baby colors of spring, and the 24K thing] which were, smaller and sorrowful. Some only a third smaller, some half size smaller, but just the same – disappointing.
It is the coloring / it is the size / it is the design - of this Show Stopper, that could easily move me - to up the price with no hesitation, in worth; only this is not my own site, this is Etsy, and the folks around here are a very friendly-type arena. I need to make money like everyone else, so I am letting it go at that price. Knowing the exquisite art, I have. Its a 'Bugatti' of centerpieces, I know, full well.
The size...the size...the size, my dears. The smaller ones...[real sneaky - “got gas”] don't qualify, in this parade of beauty. Competition/Schmompetition! NONE

Opps. I wanted to mention that I had once thought her a Soup Tureen, until I looked further to see she has no ladle opening, she is too soft of porcelain and lusterware glazing...and...I could never have thought to use her for service ware. I had come to think her as a Centerpiece!

20" length / 11" high / 12" wide. / Yes, this is a 3 piece ensemble; cover, bowl and plate.
I have totally planned to send more pictures, for greater inspection. I will do this for the hunters who ask; more closeups of the flowers, the gold...the everything. I thought thru the email system. I just wanted to display her in a variety of views for size realization & I will do every 6 inches of the entire thing, for your inspection. I realize, you must verify the 'no damage' quota.
Can't wait to hear from any possible winners!
Oh yeaaah, this is "Spring"
Nickname: 'Cynthia'

Any questions or more photo requests, I gladly acknowledge; please contact me. / This piece will be handled with special care required to transport safely.

Cynthia had some comments she came up with in her sleep...cuz she found out/has become aware that this particular item (goodie) in this shop on this particular poopy website gets pulled almost every single day. She has commanded me to write up a debate - to the next lookiloo:
"Your way off the mark if you think my price is too high, outrageous or vain. / This treasure comes from the woods of the old Royal Factory, where the capo-di-monte originated. Twentieth century craftsmen that have acquired the taste in bettering their skills...cuz...I have to say, and I'll stand and on my roof top to say it: this particular piece, in elite home decor, has to be the prettiest of all. She is antique. And she is undamaged. - Unapproachable, of an argument.
I've seen those type centerpieces with angels, nymphs, or in solid sterling silver, whatever. Nuh. They tried. / Mine is the better call, in beauty. Those roses are the best I've ever seen. And it comes in lusterware! Obscene, of a choice, to finish her off with. Too too pretty. / She is a prize... that grandmama needs to experience first. Then passed on. She is surely, an heirloom supreme. You know it."
