Presenting a magnificent pair of Capodimonte style charger plates with deep bas-relief processional borders framing a coat of arms. The plates commemorate the reign of Carlo III, who founded the first Capodimonte factory in Naples and was the ruler of Naples and Sicily in the 18th century.

The plates are embellished with a finely detailed border of a classical figures involved in frivolity, a subject quite often depicted in the bas-relief themes of the Capodimonte style. These plates were produced in Germany and are hard paste porcelain. The style of Capodimonte was so popular in the 19th century, that many examples were produced in Germany by some of the better-known porcelain manufacturers. In our opinion, the quality of workmanship on these German examples surpasses that of the Italian soft paste Capodimonte.

The plates are in excellent condition with minor gilt and enamel wear commensurate with age.

Size: 10 7/8" Diameter.
