"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.

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