What does this mean?

Hi Mike,

Thank you for contacting Mearto with your appraisal inquiry.
Capodimonte (the factory) was pretty good about marking their wares but there were several porcelain manufactories in Capodimonte (the Italian municipality) that did not so its OK to attribute this to the region rather than the company, if that makes sense
Based on the photos and information provided, and subject to examination, this is:
