I recently acquired a large Royal Dresden porcelain pedestal

Customer Question

I recently acquired a large Royal Dresden porcelain pedestal piece. It is very heavy, and about 26 inches high x 11-1/2 in wide. It is cobalt blue with gold embellishment. On each side there is a scene from what looks to be the 1800's or earlier. I can't find anything on line about how much it could be worth ? It has a gold crown on the bottom with what looks like a drawn SL initial beside it...and underneath the gold crown there are the initials: backwards R beside a K. The scene is a man a woman with Marie Antoinette like garments, hair, etc and there are two shorter people with instruments and the man beside the woman is holding a violin and she has a book on her lap. The same picture appears on the other side as well in an oval type picture with gold around it. It is a statement piece ! Can you possibly tell me how much it's worth ? Please ?
