19th C. Porcelain Figurine, Dancer in Gold-Painted Costume

Beautiful, highly glazed porcelain figurine of a classical female figure in a toga-inspired, gilded dress. She appears to be dancing on the pedestal base, the lower part gilded and the upper part decorated with applied flowers, her sandal-clad feet almost lifting her off the ground. She has long curly locks, some of it caught up in a topknot behind her head. One hand holds part of her costume at the hip, the other near her face with one finger pointed up almost in contemplation. The figure has an underglaze blue crown mark on the bottom of the base with small C-shaped brackets underneath. I believe this is an English porcelain figure, maybe mid-1800s. One side of her elaborate back sash has been broken off and painted over, almost obscuring the damage but can be seen on close examination. Height of this solid porcelain figure is 9".
