Most people searching for Capodimonte, (also spelled Capo di Monte), porcelains value and prices are looking for what it is worth because they inherited or were given a piece, or found an old-looking porcelain vase in the attic. If it is a true Capodimonte piece most people will think it must be worth a fortune.

Some rare pieces are worth a fortune, but in most cases that fancy-looking vase or lamp is going to be from the mid to late 1900s and will be worth hundreds, (at the most), not thousands of dollars.

These price guides are from online auction houses, (including ebay), and will give you the most realistic estimate of the value of the Capodimonte piece you have, (or are thinking of buying), because they are the values and prices that pieces are being bought and sold for – not someone’s estimate of their worth.

A note about which “value” you should be looking for.

There are two values for all collectible porcelains; the Book Value, which is usually the suggested retail price, or an estimate of experienced collectors, (this is primarily used for insurance and tax purposes), and the True Value which is what you can realistically expect to sell or buy the piece for. There is usually a very big difference between the two values.

Be honest in your evaluation and only consider the sold prices of comparable pieces for an idea of their true value.
