I have been trying to identify the origin and maker of this figurine. She stands 24cm tall, and has the date 1947 on it. I would appreciate any assistance once again.

I am not trying to be negative about it, as I think that it looks very attractive; is decorated very well and appears to be a fine casting of the figure.

The initials and date suggest that it could have been a blank that was bought and then decorated by someone with the initials V H.

If the blank was British manufacture then it would have to have been sold undecorated, as in the 1940s only plain wares were able to be sold in the UK because of the restrictions after the war.

However, I accept that I could be completely wrong.

I wonder if there was just no flat area suitable for a factory mark?

American, maybe? There was a ban on manufacturers making decorative pieces during the War; I don’t know when that was repealed
