Capodimonte Flowers as Arrangements
The beauty of the color and artistry of the Italian porcelain pieces from the early designers in the Naple's Capo di Monte region were usually displayed in florals that were the point of the piece instead of being a decoration for a piece. This is one of the features that make Capodimonte pieces one of the most desirable porcelain collection segments.
And because ebay is the Nets' largest clearing houses for vintage collectible porcelain, it is the one place you can be sure to find the largest selection of available pieces at prices set by the buyers in the marketplace and not just arbitrary sellers prices.
Here are some beautiful antique and vintage porcelain and ceramic examples.
Why Smart Porcelain Collectors Check ebay First
