Large Breathtaking Porcelain 19th Century Native American Lady

I am in awe of this gorgeous porcelain figurine. She stands 27 inches tall and her base circumference is 34-1/4 inches. Her markings are on the bottom of the base in block letter L & M. She is dressed in what looks to be an early Native American costume with a Princess aura with jewels adorning the feathers in her hat and costume. Her costume is in the jewel tones of purple, blue and magenta with gold accents. She has hand-painted grapes, floral, twigs, leaves and gold luster in the very detailed painting of her short ornamental costume. She has an animal pelt thrown over her shoulder that hangs to the ground. She is holding a colorful game bird in her very delicately formed hand. She has nail detail on her hands and feet. Her belt is adorned with seashells hanging from it. Her hair is in long braids down her back. The ears have gold luster earrings painted on the lobes. The face is so delicately painted that it is difficult to justify with description, such as feathered brows, shaded eyelids, black liner, open/closed drawn mouth with teeth and very pale shading of the cheeks. Not to forget her outstanding base that is also done in jewel tones with wood and natural stone surrounding her long and slender legs.

Please note that the underside of the base has two very old lines, possibly a product of manufacturing and one on the underside of the pelt on her shoulder. She has what might be a repair of the pinkie and next finger on her right hand, but, if so, it is very professionally done and hard to detect.

This is a remarkable piece that is attributed to European origin in the mid to late 1800's. It is possible this piece is an attribute to Pocahontas who was considered a Princess.
