There is a porcelain figurine in my family consisting of two

Customer Question

There is a porcelain figurine in my family consisting of two men and two women. the men are playing string instruments and the women appear to be reading music sheets. The hallmark seems to be an S with two almost horizontal lines forming an x.
The piece was purchased before 1950, but how long before is unknown. Can you identify the hallmark? It is not one of the Meissen marks I have seen.

I have pictures on my iPhone of both figurine and mark, but have no way to send to a web address. Is there an email address I could send to?

Not sure if you received the pictures. Phone sent through Cox first couple of times. Cox has been out for days. I tried to copy/paste in to GMail but the pics came in very large and not sure they sent. Did anything come to you?
Expert:  rusufdavi replied 2 years ago.
I have not received the pics yet. This is a manual process, it usually takes around a couple of hours.
