    Hi! I was given this and it belonged to my grandmother. I would appreciate any help in identifying what this is. It’s approximately 9” tall. Thank you so much!

      If I were to sell this piece, does anyone know where I might sell it or what it’s worth?
    9. apostata apostata, 3 months ago
      you convinced me its a harlequin , a good addendum by the way, but i still think its an interbellum pice , but maybe i got the odds against me

      Well..............CW's policy is that prices are not discussed. We're here to share our finds with each other, and help each other with research. I think you have enough to search for what you want on your own?

      Thank you Gillian, I won’t be asking about that again. I appreciate this site very much and I wouldn’t want to go against policy. :)

      These were made by H.B. Hirsch and his sons right after the war circa 1946 when they went over to France to dig up the original moulds which were hidden under the bronze foundry floors. This is one of their more popular and common figures made mostly into lamps. There are also figures made in Europe which often have major differences in the hats. Lamps are the most highly collected ones and the history is in one of my posts:
