Refers to the style of soft-paste porcelain first produced at the Real Fábrica del Buen Retiro near Madrid in 1759 under the auspices of King Charles III of Spain. The factory reestablished the equipment, craftsmen, and designs formerly of the factory that Charles oversaw at Palazzo di Capodimonte in Naples from 1743 to 1758. Production of Buen Retiro porcelain continued until 1808 when the factory closed; then resumed in 1817, at La Monocloa, continuing until 1850.
