I love her, what a super piece Clap
Ben, you really do put some interesting bits on here. Sorry I cannot help with the identification, though as you say, she is well modelled and I am sure someone will recognise her.

Thank you - I’m glad you like her, I do as well but I’m sure it’s a very personal thing. I suspect there are more large figures out there with glasses of wine or mugs of coffee.

You may be right, though I wouldn't imagine anything on a mass produced scale.

Looks like a mark there on the second picture, far left running vertically?

I looked at that under a glass and I don’t think it is a mark. But I will look on her bottom when I get back home next! Thanks.

I own a South American figure that is fairly similar so worth checking it out

Would not have thought that. I thought she was maybe a London girl. But I’ll definitely take a look.

Hilary Brock comes to mind. He certainly did a lot of these quirky type pieces in a not dissimilar modelling style. Whether this one is quite detailed enough I am not too sure. Judge for yourself on google! (The link I originally included did not work, and had to be edited out...)

Doesn’t look like the Lladrao figurines I googled and it’s similarity but not quite the same style as Hilary Brock. She’s holding a cigarette but a little bit may be broken, and an ashtray. Thanks for looking.

Fat? I think you mean amply proportioned, juicy, buxom or big-boned.

I havent found the artist but Pinterest has whole albums devoted to such 'Art Dolls'. Emilio Casarotto's work is worth a look, and Annie Peaker
