    IMG_5907 copy.jpg Hi!

    One of a pair (I also have the Shepard) given to me 30ish years ago by my grandmother, would like to know if it is worth getting the pair restored. I have fully exhausted all my resources in trying to identify the maker, I hope someone can help. The base has two marks - I need to upload another photo.

    Thank-you so much!

    Welcome Grace!

    Not Meissen. I couldn't find this on the big porcelain reference sites, but I only looked briefly. This source points to Triebner in Volkstedt:

    So Thuringia rather than Saxony, which is close.

    Plenty of Triebner figurines on eBay and elsewhere, so you should be able to find something similar to help with pricing.

    Blush. :) Thank you -- but no, I'm just a newbie who happened to see your post at a time of day/night when many forum members were asleep (N America) or walking their dogs / having breakfast (UK).

    If you stick around you'll see how fast some of the real experts are. In the meantime, if you'd like to introduce yourself then this is the place for a "hello":

    This isn't 18th C. Maybe 1900-1920ish.
