Identifying Figurine?

A figurine of a woman and child.I'd like to know what company made this and what is it worth? It was my mother's who is gone now, so I do not know the history.

It is difficult to read the markings; you need a picture showing the complete straight bottom - not slanted.
Figurines like this are usually difficult to identify and many times takes someone who specializes in vintage/antique figurines.

The best place to ask for help is on the Reddit site, as they have members who can usually help identify items like this.
You should have a few more pictures and add measurements.
I feel sure you have some knowledge about how long you have knowledge of this being in your mother's possession, and maybe another family member may have additional information.
The Reddit site can be confusing sometimes, so if you have problems, contact the administrator and ask for help.

Hopefully, another member will provide more information.

I would think it would have a clear label on the bottom if it were a well known company. I would take it to a dealer if I were you.

I think the mark is similar to mark of this plate Old Delft Sailor Boat River 9 1/2" made by Keller and Guerin in Saint Clement factory during the end of the 19th century:

'Jacques Chambrette Senior initially started the first fine pottery works in Lorraine in 1711. His son began in 1722 by trading faience in Lunéville. He built his own factory there in 1730, just before he obtained the royal permission.'
www.wikiwand.com/.../Luneville_faience
According to other sources the history of the Keller & Guerin factory dates to 1728 when Jacques Chambrette built his first factory in Luneville in the province of Lorraine.

France levied heavy taxes on goods imported from Lorraine, because Lorraine was an independent state at that time. To escape those duties, in 1758 Jacques Chambrette established a second factory - the faience factory of Saint-Clement, Meurthe-et-Moselle, only seven miles from Lunéville, but ln French territory . www.infofaience.com/.../stclement-hist#:~:text=The%20faience....

Richard Mique bought in 1763 the Saint-Clément factory.
In 1786 Sebastien Keller bought Luneville. About in 1832, Sébastien Keller's son aligned with his brother-in-law Guérin to give birth to the mark K&G (or KG) from the names Keller and Guérin. www.leblogantiquites.com/.../la-fa%C3%AFence-de-lun%C3%A9ville...

I think your figurine was made by Keller and Guerin in the end of the 19th century.

We can identify this figurine by the markings. The marking is not very clear, maybe better quality photos can help. 

It looks like there is a crown and crossed letters like the Royal Crown Derby markings.

The Royal Crown Derby Porcelain Company is the oldest or second oldest remaining English porcelain manufacturer, based in Derby, England.
There are many different markings, as there have been various factories that have been home to the production of Royal Crown Derby over the years.

I think your figurine has the mark similar to trademarks from the Osmaston Road Factory Crown Derby Factory. Compare the stamp to "An iconic Royal Crown Derby mark, The Derby Crown Period C.1877-1890."

Compare with the blue mark of this pair of Large English Porcelain Circular Plaques, Derby Crown, circa 1880

This English porcelain figurine from the late 1800s, Royal Crown Derby Porcelain Company is at 300 EUR
