Capodimonte Porcelain

When Charles VII took Princess Maria Amelia Christina of Saxony for his bride.

A portion of the Princess's fabulous dowry consisted of extraordinary examples of Meissen porcelain produced in her father,s royal workshop. An enlightened supporter of the arts, Charles immediately resolved that such beauty should be produced in Italy as well.

In 1743, The Royal Manufactory of Porcelain was erected on the grounds of the royal place. It stood high atop a hill, and it soon became nown to all as Capodimonte, which means top of the mountain. 

A school, The Academia del Modello, was also established to train talented young artists in the painstaking techniques of ceramic sculpting. Many years passed, and Charles was granted his wish as exquisite Italian-made tea sets, coffee services, statues and tureens began to appear at court. Unable to enjoy the beauty of flowers in bloom because of his allergies, he directed his workshops to create delicate floral arrangements in porcelain, each a precious tribute to nature,s real, but all-too-fleeting beauty. Soon the royal palace overflowed with porcelain bouquets of incredible artistry and sumptuous color. The tradition of Capodimonte flowers had begun. 

The crowning artistic achievement of Charles VII remains the porcelain room he created for his bride in their summer place at Portici. The ceilings, walls and floors were constructed entirely of porcelain and mirrors. This dazzling display of artistry was to inspire his son, Ferdinand IV, to inherit his father,s passion for porcelain.
