    I have known this figurine all my life but there are no marks on it at all. It's about 12 inches high and looks as if the material is porcelain or bisque.

    Just wondered if anyone can help identifying it for me - not interested in values just to know something about it as it was handed down to me by my father when he's passed away a number of years ago.

      I would probably start looking into high quality German porcelain manufactuers maybe.

      Your Figurine used to be a part of a pair actually - Its German Bisque, popular in the 18th century and displayed on fireplace mantles and buffets or ladies dressing tables. Theye were produced through the 1940's mainly in Germany. Most German bisque predate the great destruction of the WW2 - after the war it was to costly to rebuild entire companies and factories so a majority of what bisque you find is most definitely prior to 1940. We do know its German, its bisque and if yours is unmarked it most likely pre-dates the 1890 - 91 tariff act - The most desirable bisque figurines feature vivid faces, and fine details as your does, they also feature hands and arms appropriated away from the body, extra features go as far as animals - fencing - feathers - fingers - musical instruments - flowing hair and anything that makes the figure more than a figure without any dimension - This type of figurine can be found ranging in size between 3 inches to 3 feet tall - they are best collected in pairs and most valuable in pairs. although someone is always to complete their pair so there is value, a bisque like yours should be valued at 35 to 80 dollars and if you had the pair the value would most likely be between 160 - 350 dollars or more depending on maker and condition - I can't see clearly but I believe yours to be a great example of what to look for - Generally the older more desirable bisque were finer in detail, your is an nice example of an 18th century piece - the fattened face and attention detail tell us that your piece is a finer maker piece -

      Thank you very much for this - we did wonder if it was part of a pair but I dont know who has the other one or even if this was in the family.
