Gulliver's World Puppy Love Figurine?

I have what I believe is a Gulliver's World figurine. Puppy Love. But it has no markings, signature, or plaque

It looks very similar to this one on ebay:

I believe you are correct about Gullivers.

I'm not sure but I believe it would have a signature/plaque if it was a true Gulliver's World by Armani .
It appears the company made these in several different material/colors but I did not see any with any colors even similar to yours.
When comparing several of the signed figurines - it looks like it was named 'Puppy Care'? - they all look much more refined than your piece.

I believe you have what is commonly called a 'knock-off' and companies made these when these figurines were selling for high money years ago - 80s-90s.
Some copies/fakes were as nice as the originals and very difficult to verify but most of those also used a fake signature.

Maybe other members will have other opinions.

If it is not marked then it is probably a knockoff and not worth as much as the original.

Giuseppe Armani figurines have Giuseppe Armani's signature, a blue Neapolitan "N" with crown mark (the mark of Capodimonte), a metal tag with the word Florence imbedded on it or a metal plate with name Giuseppe Armani, original box, Certificate of Authenticity (available for limited edition pieces). The "N" with crown mark can change because there is no trade mark restriction for this, the plate/box/certificate can be absent, the Giuseppe Armanis signature can be different - from simple initials to the full name, but the signature cannot disappear, since it is engraved in porcelain. If there is no confirmation that it was made by Giuseppe Armani, then you cannot consider this figurine made by this Italian sculptor and artist. You have a "like" Armani figurine. Your figurine looks like Gulliver's World series (1980s), but it seems to me that the proportions have been changed (see attached screenshot) www.ebay.com/.../133454383327
