"S" Mark on Porcelain Figurine Query

"S" Mark on Porcelain Figurine Query:- I have tried finding information about the maker of this ceramic figurine that depicts a shepherd and three sheep. I believe it is German, but have no real evidence for that other than the general style. It is in excellent condition and very well done.


Any information would be greatly appreciated!

I have more pictures if anyone is interested.

Thanks

Angela

Dear Angela

Many thanks for your query and photo. I hate to say this but I have no answer for you I'm afraid.

=============================
UPDATE

WE NOW HAVE THE ANSWER TO THIS 'S' POTTERY MARK QUERY. THE MAKER IS Fasold and Stauch - SEE FULL ANSWER BELOW.

=============================

As a keen china enthusiast, I can normally give visitors lots of helpful pointers, but in your case, I have drawn a complete blank.

It is a beautifully designed and executed mark typical of a European maker, but there are no notable factories that I can trace to having this particular mark.

The most likely contender for a Porcelain manufacturer with an "S" mark would be a PORCELAIN FIGURINE FROM SITZERODE / SITZENDORF FACTORY Thuringia, Germany. However their marks are very distinctive and normally involve a crown device.

Use the search box on my home page to find out more about 'S' marks generally.

Meanwhile if anybody else can shed some light on this query I would love to hear from you - leave a comment below.

Best regards,

Dear Peter, or visitors, I just wondered if there has been any more news concerning the S mark raised and shown in the query below? We have a pretty lady bearing the same mark and would love to know where she came from. I'd be grateful for any information. All the best - Rhona

Hi Rhona

No, unfortunately nothing on this one yet. However, don't give up hope as the answer can suddenly just crop up as it has so many time before over these forums.

Forgot to say - I moved your comment to this thread as you had inadvertently posted it on my other website which sells John Bromley's and my most recent bone china figurines.

And thanks for the nice photos - interesting to see a different colour for the S pottery mark.

Fasold Stauch - S Mark
by: Angela Crews

This is the mark of Fasold and Stauch, a German company operating from the early 1900s until the early 1970s, I think. There is some connection to the Wallendorf Co.

What a great website!

Many thanks indeed, Peter, for posting this query - and for posting it in the correct place instead of my initial location. And many thanks indeed, Angela Crews, for providing the answer about Fasold and Stauch. Greatly appreciated! I will spread the word about this excellent website. All the best, Rhona
