M O Pottery Mark Query - Crown above
Pottery Mark Query - Crown above "M" overlaying "O" in a circle with the word "FOREIGN" underneath:- Hi there, I have been trying to find out further information regarding this figurine that has been sat on my display shelf for some time now.
When I was dusting it earlier, the green maize protective base fell off, and revealed the pottery mark as mentioned above which I am having difficulty in finding any further information on.
As well as the markings detailed above, and shown in the picture, the numbers 7213 appear to be imprinted on the base.
I stumbled across your site so wondered if anyone here would know a little more and be kind enough to share.
Thanks in advance, and best wishes

Nice query on "Pottery Mark Query - Crown above "M" overlaying "O" in a circle with the word "FOREIGN" underneath".
This is interesting. Looks suspiciously East German to me. Why? Too good modeling to be Far East, which is generally pants (no offence) .... I think it may have started out life as an inexpensive trinket rather than premium - but could be wrong because the sculpt is good quality.
However, it may have an interesting story to tell about a period in history and may have a value. Maybe someone who knows will see this and shed some light.
I found the answer while doing a special search on ebay (the same system I talk about in this page - China Replacement and research
See how right or wrong my guess was and what 'story' is revealed. Scroll down to the comments section for my answer
