Availability: 1 in stock


The Capodimonte Gemini statuine is gorgeous ceramic figurine, part of the ‘Signs of the Zodiac’ collection, made in the early 20th century from Capodimonte ceramic painted in gold.

Capodimonte is a type of Italian porcelain first developed in the 18th century. It is known for its bright colours, intricate details and striking designs with flowers, animals or mythical figures. Its production requires incredible craftsmanship, as each piece must be hand-painted to create unique designs. For this reason, Capodimonte pieces are highly sought-after and valuable due to their rarity. Over the years, they have become a valuable part of many collections and are considered an important piece of Italian cultural history.
The base is spherical in shape, with a simply splendid gold surround. At the base of the feet is the sign of the zodiac represented by this statue: Gemini.
One leg is slightly forward of the other, entirely wrapped in a golden robe.
The zodiac sign of Gemini is often represented with the dove because it symbolises love, harmony and communication. These are qualities commonly attributed to Gemini personalities, known for their ability to express themselves clearly and effectively. In addition, the dove has long been associated with the idea of partnership and companionship, which can be seen as a reflection of the value that Gemini people place on relationships and socialising.
The statue is splendid and is suitable for collectors.
