(1743-1759) (1771-1821) Established 1743 by Charles III near Naples. Charles vacated crown in 1759. In 1771 his successor Ferdinand IV revived the works at Portici. They were removed to Naples in 1773 where the Ginori factory at Doccia absorbed many of the old models in 1821. Soft paste porcelain was made from 1743 to 1759. From 1771 hard and soft paste and biscuit were made. Old Capo di Monte is rare, but the market today is flooded with spurious specimens generally marked in blue with a crowned "N". Late factories in France, Germany, and Italy produced these recent specimens. (See Doccia). Little is known of early marks.
