I am struggling to find someone who could value a broken statue that can not be replaced. The item is an Albany china figurine designed by Zandra Rhodes (around 1991) name of piece is Cream Lily, it is a limited edition of 250 when it was given as a gift in 1991 I believe it cost between £400 and £500.

Nice query from Kevin on Zandra Rhodes and Royal Albert (Albany??). Thanks.
Sounds like you have a nice item. I am not familiar with a well known maker called Albany. However, I do happen to know that Zandra Rhodes has been associated with Royal Albert for many years. Perhaps that was a typo on your part?
I would be interested to see this item. It would be great if you could send in photos. I think it is quite unusual and rare.
Royal Albert is a part of the Wedgwood Waterford group based in Stoke-on-Trent, Staffordshire. If you were to contact them they may well have records of the figurine in question.
You can go to my China Replacement page and follow the instructions on how to search for more Zandra Rhodes Royal Albert wares online.
Hope this helps
