    I've checked it out against other Benacchio figurines and the workmanship looks good. The Triade Mark to match others from the same stable, but I hesitate. It's the 'BENACCHIO' in upper case, which I have not seen replicated elsewhere, which is impressed as 'Benacchio'. And also the gold rim does not strike me as good, but that could be the effect of lighting.

    I'd appreciate the thoughts of other members please. At €29 I think it should sell at a profit. Thanks for you opinions.

    The marks look correct. Lately, I have seen the figural groups sell for less then $50 at auction - even then, many have passed. We won't accept them on consignment anymore. Across the pond might be different.

    Thanks @laura9797 I'm pleased about the marks, I was concerned at the use of capital letters.

    Looking Ebay, which is the asking, not the selling price, I've noticed that USA prices are lower that those asked in Europe, I shall see if I can find a direct comparison.

    Brian this same one sold on worth pt for $48 in 2011. It was 8.5" high and came with certificate of authenticity. It appears to have sold in UK.

    It has the Benaccio in small case but I don't think that matters they probably did both just different style. This would be a pass for me theres way too many of these on the market even an expensive one will not sell quickly

    Brian here is the link to one that appears to be same/similar to yours:

    https://www.worthpoint.com/worthopedia/capodimonte-mother-child-benacchi-249577998

    NOte this sale was an auction which will typically bring lower prices than leaving it in the store for an extended period. Especially so with items that are not one of a kind, such as this. Still I would not think it will fetch more than $75 on the ebay market. Most of these (benaccio, with nothing special) are selling at about 75; however the numbered ones with COA may go in the $250 range.

    Thank you @sunday silence. I think on balance I will give it a miss.
