It was Tuesday and I went to my regular 'oppie' down the road and came back with this piece of porcelain. The body of the boy appears bisque and is painted. The top of the toadstool however has been glazed and has underglaze decoration.
Thanks to KIVATINITZ , we have a solution .... He's CZECH!
He has a painted artist mark of 'ur' and a stamped dark brown '9' or is it a '6'?
Impressed in the porcelain are some numbers: 26/52.
The young boy's eyes are wide open at the sight of the beetle below ... he has a flower in his left hand on the toadstool.
Looks as if he is going to whack the beetle or lady bird.
17.5 cm tall .... 6.9 inches
