I need help in identifying this piece I received from a deceased aunt. It's smooth china with "gold" overlay and has only a numeric mark as seen in photo. Who made it? What's the correct name for the piece?

    I think its possibly German(Dresden) or other European. Is it chunky heavy or light compared to its look? These courting scenes were popular in Victorian times...the lady who first bought this probably called him Mr Darcy. Whats putting me off is its moulded. Therefore it may have been a mass produced item for export to say to anywhere really, the UK? Or it may have been a Stoke mould from a local potter...I'm confusing myself!

    Its beautiful. I love the gold and her petticoat of blush pink....

    I collect Fairings for a laugh, this is not a Fairing however the concepts of a domestic afternoon tea with a suitor are similar. I have a chess scene one and its German. The number is most likely the maker pattern number.

    Any made in Germany on the base? And shield? Cross bows..doubtful but checking...
