  4. I like the "modelling" that you've achieved here.

    Capo di Monte?

    This one is by D. Bonalberti, Italy.

    (I do have one Capo di Monte piece)
     
  6. Hey Ken.

    I noticed you said you have a Capo Di Monte figurine? I have two that were made around 1880. Lovely 14" ladies. I collect figurines also. I have lots of Lladro, Armani and Bavarian porcelain. Would love to see some of yours.

    Regards,

    The Capo Di Monte piece I have is not a figurine, it's a decorative oblong bowl. I've had it for about 35 years, and have no idea how old is was when I acquired it. I like these pieces, but am not a collector......I removed the figurine photo from Flickr just the other day.....

    Hi Ken,

    Well I can see why it is a fovorite.
    Nice job on the image :>)))))

    That is a great figurine... Bet that has been around for awhile. Don't see them very often. Or at least I don't.

    Thank You

    I named these ladies Abigail and Madelyn. This is before Capo Di Monte became known for the green and yellow, cherubbie type porcelain.

    Hey Ken, thanks for resposting that. He's cool. Looks pretty comfortable. Nice capture too.
