Help ID figurine

Post by g.orlandini on July 26th 2016, 4:40 pm

Iíve bought recently a porcelain figurine (height 18 cm) and I'd ask your help in identifying the origin. Here are photos of the mark (it looks like a crown)





and the figurine (front and side).






Many thanks in advance for sharing your opinions

I don't know the mark, but I would guess at maybe Russian or Hungarian.

I was thinking USSR - the white body seems to me to have the same look as my Losomonov stoat!

I agree it remembers a East Europe style and after reading your opinions I've searched the mark as Russian or Hungarian but I didn't succeed.

Thanks again for your help

A nice stylish thing. No idea of age but when I see gold applied to a figure I always thing of the Hungarian factory Zsolnay pecs. Of course they were not the only factory using gold but they did specialise in things made in the Turkish taste and I think that is what we have here. She's a racy belly dancer. Look for countries bordering the Med particularly Italy or Turkey and I think you will find it's home

Surely that gold would rub if it had any age.

It would if it was an item that had any use like a cup or bowl. But you would be surprised how things like figures keep fine detail simply by the fact they are never touched. Saying that those feet do shout 1960's rather than 1920's

It seems everybody is pointing toward East Europe countries (in particular Russia and Hungary). Thanks for sharing your ideas and advice.
