This is a chalkware figurine from the 1940's. Several American companies made these during this time period. Chalkware is made of gypsum (the same stuff that drywall is made of) and is a form of plaster. It was then painted or airbrushed is vivid and/or pastel color themes. This type of ware does get damaged very easily and I see that yours is missing part of the bonnet. In pristine condition, this would be worth $40.00 and in this condition it is worth $20.00.
