Capodimonte porcelain was created by the Capodimonte porcelain manufactory, which was established in Naples, Italy, in 1743. Capodimonte porcelain was made in direct emulation of Meissen porcelain. Capodimonte is famous for its moulded figurines. This piece was designed and signed by D. Bonalberti. This piece is exquisite in its detail, from the wrinkles on the hobo’s face down to the holes in the toes of his shoes. There are no cracks, chips or any discoloration, this is a very well preserved piece.
