Crown over 'A' Pottery Mark Query
Crown over 'A' Pottery Mark Query:- When clearing out my mother-in-law's house (she moved into a residential home) I found a figurine of a young peasant girl feeding a goose. It stands about 6" high. It has a pottery mark on the base of a dark blue crown with the letter 'A'.
My mother-in-law has given me the figurine and I would like to know more about the potter's mark?
Can you please help?

This Crown over 'A' pottery mark is not an instantly recognisable one from a well known high quality maker. It has the 'Naples' type crown typical of German makers paying 'homage' to Capodimonte, but normally these marks have an 'N' or an 'S' under, not an 'A'.
It's hard to say what type of maker it is without a photo of the item, but my guess would be a small German manufacturer or possibly even Far east Importer.
Perhaps you could upload a photo of the figurine for us - here's a shortcut to the submission form

Note to all visitors: it's always best to send in photos of both the pottery mark AND the item to stand a chance of getting a good answer on these pages.
