Hi There~
My name is ***** ***** I am here to help with your question.
At your convenience, please send photos. A full image with the design and a clear, in-focus close-up of the mark would be ideal.
When taking a clear close-up try using the macro function on your camera. It looks like a small flower icon. This will allow sharper focus at a closer-range.
When evaluating an item, photos are essential to helping me come to a correct assessment.
There may be an +Add Files button or if there is a toolbar with a paperclip icon showing above the box where you type in responses, then follow the steps on this link for sharing photos:

I look forward to seeing the images. If you are unable to send photos right away, that is fine – there is not a time limit here.
Sincerely,
Nora

Hi,
Thank you for the image.
At your convenience, please send a clear, in-focus image of her face, the Moreau signature on this, the number marks you mention and a close-up of the electrical cord end that plugs into the wall.

There is not a signature of the artist anywhere on the piece that I could find but there are some painted numbers inside and the cord looks to be the same as some other pieces that I have looked at.

Customer reply replied 2 years ago
It seems that someone has repainted the piece. I found no makers mark and if there is a signature then it may be covered by the paint it was touched up with.
Antique Expert: Nora, Expert in Fine and Decorative Arts: Renaissance through Contemporary replied 2 years ago
Hello,
An original Moreau would have the signature impressioned into the surface and paint would not hide nor disguise it.
Please send requested images at your convenience.
Thank you,
Nora

If you say the paint will not cover the signature then it is not what I thought it to be. Thank you very much for you time.
Antique Expert: Nora, Expert in Fine and Decorative Arts: Renaissance through Contemporary replied 2 years ago
Hello,
I can be more definite about what you have if I can see more images.
Please let me know how you would like to proceed.
Sincerely,
