This basket of fruit appears to be a Capodimonte, although there is no mark on it anywhere. I did read that some of them so do not bear a mark, so I would like to verify its authenticity, if possible. It measures 7" wide and 5" tall. The round base that it sits on measures 3 inches. It is in excellent condition.
Thank you for contacting Mearto with your appraisal inquiry.
Yes, while it is true that Capodimonte did not mark everything, there are other companies who made things in the same style and marked pieces generally bring a premium price over unmarked pieces. Without a marking, purchase receipt or confirmation from a Capodimonte maker, a firm attribution is impossible.
