This was given to me as a small child and was always referred to as
'Lucy Locket". I live in the potteries anyway so could be any of the
local manufacturers. I have never seen another one despite looking for
years. She has a look of Sylvac about her, but has no markings other
than a few numbers on the base. My Uncle at the time was a driver for Beswick and Ridgway so its also possible she could have come from there?
I would love to finally be able to put a name to her, she has massive
sentimental value to me as she was given to me by my late dad.

Details:

No Base Markings other than the number on the base is stamped in and is 3099
Height roughly 8 inches

Thanks Dan :)

Im 36 now and she has sat on a shelf with me for as long as I can remember. She's one of those things I could never part with but I'd love to know more about really. She's always intrigued me.

Very true! I've scoured antique shops and websites for years to try and find one like her. I thought for a time she may have been Sylvac, but I still don't know.

I have another piece I've not been able to identify as well, but unlike Lucy she was a charity shop find a few years ago that my husband thinks is hideous. It keeps me entertained hunting for clues!
