I've had this bull for about 20 years but don't really known anything about it. It looks Italian to me.

Can anyone tell me which factory made it and what the date of it might be?

It stands around 12cm tall - nearly 5 inches - and is slip-cast.

The second photo shows the underside and a number written into the glaze: C-523 1081

I have just done some digging around on the wonderful web and reckon it could be made by a Polish company called Cmielow.

Are there any Cmielow experts here?

I'm no expert but it doesn't look like any Cmielow I have seen before

Do you know if it's porcelain?

I knew gnu someone here would know what it is. Many thanks for the details.

It looks like a bull to me - would never have guessed it's a gnu.

The company - now called AS Cmielow - is still knocking these out.

Would this orig' be worth much more than a new one?

Honestly haven't got a clue, but I should imagine like most things, the original is always worth more than the copy.
