Soft-paste porcelain ware that was first produced by the factory at the Palazzo di Capodimonte in 1743 under the auspices of Charles VII of Naples and continued until 1758 when Charles became the king of Spain, dismantling the concern and reestablishing it as the Real Fábrica del Buen Retiro near Madrid. The style was developed by chief modeler Giuseppe Grieci from prototypes by Meissen.
