Gold Trimmed Porcelain Milk Maid Dog and Cart Figurine Marked Numbered
This beautiful bisque porcelain figurine features a milk maid in blue and a handsome dog pulling a cart. Carefully designed and trimmed in gold, Measuring 6 3/4" high and 7 1/2" wide. The thick base is marked in the center of the front with a manufacturer's name and on the back with a number 5161, 516A or 5/6. The roughness of the base design makes it unreadable to me. This figurine is more than vintage and is in the tradition of Royal Dux pieces, although this is apparently NOT one of theirs. I have searched high and low to identify the manufacturer and have not yet come up with a match, but will keep searching. A quality figurine that has no chips or cracks. It is in exceptional condition and comes from a deceased dealer who dealt in high end antiques.
