Late 19th Cent Large Capodimonte casket
This very large oval "Capodimonte" casket is 15 cm tall, and 21 cm wide, 16 cm deep. The hinged lid is supported by a good gilt brass mount. The mount is often the first clue as to age. This casket bears the crowned N mark typical of all Capodimonte type porcelain (except the real original 18th century Capodimonte, which is marked with a fleur de Lis). This casket is also marked with a gilt crossed arrow mark, like a la Corteille mark, so this may be French, while most of these are of German manufacture.
