To trace the history of Naples Porcelain you have to look at the origin of Capodimonte Porcelain, the wares and the crowned N mark and periods. And; how production of Capodimonte Porcelain Figurines and floral displays dates back to the early eighteenth century and to the Kingdom of Naples. Charles was coronated King of Naples and Sicily on August 3rd. His desire was to create a porcelain manufactory of a quality comparable with the electors factory in Saxony, and whose methods and ingredients were only known by the chemist Bottger Charles initially allocated a small building in the Royal Palace to be dedicated to porcelain production under the direction of Giovanni Caselli and the chemist Livio Ottavio Schepers, who had originally worked at the Neapolitan Mint. In spite of many efforts, including underhand methods, the formula remained a mystery and after many investigations Charles finally concluded that the conditions in his little building were not suitable for porcelain production, there being insufficient space for the ovens and driers. In , Charles commissioned the construction of a new factory in the Royal Wood of Capodimonte, by the architect Ferdinando Sanfelice. The History of Capo di Monte Porcelain After vast research conducted throughout Italy to find a suitable substance to manufacture porcelain of a quality equal to the Chinese porcelain, deposits of kaolin were finally discovered at Fuscaldo and Paola in the Province of Catanzaro. Charles VII immediately ordered brushes and painting equipment from Dresda; gold used for gilding was obtained from crushed Ungheris and Zecchinis. Charles employed the chemist and son of Livio Schepers, Gaetano Schepers, who perfected the porcelain paste. Knobs on walking sticks were mounted in gold by the Frenchman Pietro Chevalier and the Neapolitan Antonio de Laurentis.

Though born as “Kauffmann”, Kauffman is the preferred spelling of her name in English; it is the form she herself used most in signing her correspondence, documents and paintings. While Kauffman produced many types of art, she identified herself primarily as a history painter, an unusual designation for a woman artist in the 18th century. History painting, was considered the most elite and lucrative category in academic painting during this time period.

Under the direction of Sir Joshua Reynolds, the Royal Academy made a strong effort to promote history painting to a native audience who were more interested in commissioning and buying portraits and landscapes. Despite the popularity that Kauffman enjoyed in British society and her success as an artist, she was disappointed by the relative apathy that the British had towards history painting.

Ultimately she left Britain for the continent, where history painting was better established, held in higher esteem and patronized. The works of Angelica Kauffman have retained their reputation. By , rooms decorated with her work were still to be seen in various quarters.
