This is made by Principe Ceramics, a company that made Capo di Monte ceramic reproductions in Nove, Italy from 1980 to 1995. The actual Capodimonte mark is a blue N with a crown. The crown used represents the fact that the real capodimonte factory was founded by Ferdinand, the son of Charles III King of Spain in 1771.

This piece you have has a value of $35.00 currently since it is a more modern reproduction piece.
