Another Capodimonte!

Before moving on to other pieces in our collection, I thought I might show you a massive Capodimonte centrepiece bowl which we found last summer at the Cheshire Cat Gallery in Raleigh, NC. The same bowl on eBay is described as: "A stunning cherub or muses figural (sic) vintage Capodimonte centrepiece fruit bowl ... about 50 to 70 years old, signed on the bottom, all hand-painted." Of course, we did not purchase this bowl just because it was a Capodimonte, but because, front and centre, there is a figure with red hair playing on her frame drum.
