    Another pretty find.. she looks like she was carved? Can find any markings.. pretty heavy approx 11" tall. Alabaster?

    Looks like it, and yes carved. Probably a pretty souvenir from Italy, maybe 1960s-70s.
    She is after a well-known piece, but I can't remember who, what, where. No doubt someone else will find her.;)
    The base looks odd.

    Looks like Renaissance-inspired romanticism meets a mid-20th century reduction in skill level. Nice find though.
