What is This Cute Old Figurine?

My wife bought this figure in a New York market decades ago, a girl? Anyone know what it is, make, origin etc, looks Swiss, German or Dutch. Anyone seen similar as a matching boy would keep her company. No markings at all, felt on soles of feet.

Very cute! It may be a DELEE POTTERY piece, although I am not sure if they are marked or not. The piece maybe marked under the felt, but sadly you risk damage if you try to remove the felt.

Are you asking to sell? You could always just call it unbranded and list the height and coloring. Most figurines have little value in the resale world. You could always start at $25 and take best offer.

Thanks for sharing!

I wouldn't count out Meissen - this German hard paste produced at the Meissen factory near Dresden in Saxony (now Germany) from 1710 until now. This is the first company to make true porcelain, and very collectable. Here is more on the history - en.wikipedia.org/.../meissen_porcelain - here is link to the fine pieces offered for sale - www.etsy.com/search?q=meissen%20character%20porcelain - To be sure of this piece it is recommended that a antiques seller/appraiser to verify the piece.

I don't have any information on the figurine's maker or origin but I'm pretty sure it is of a little German boy, not a girl. The figurine is wearing lederhosen and pants and has short hair. Older figurines would never put a girl into pants and would probably have braids or long hair.

Hope you find the information you are looking for.
