Large life size open red rose with leaves and stem is in pristine condition. Marked Capodimonte Italy, (with the N Napoleon mark).Rose is 4" wide plus the length of the stem. The Studios of Napoleon were started over 25 years ago by two friends. One a master ceramic sculptor and the other a manager director. It is a small Studio in Flero on the outskirts of Brescia, Italy, with about 20 workers, including the administration staff. They use the finest raw material that are gathered from around the world to create the clay to make a really fine porcelain. Their artists using this clay create flowers of astonishing beauty and realism. All colors are based on actual colors found in nature. They are painstakingly created petal by petal.
