Can you please identify this French porcelain mark at http://edgarlowen.com/sevres-8080.jpg ? It's on a porcelain bust of Mme. Laistre wife of the famous astronomer Cassini dated 1813. See http://edgarlowen.com/mme-laistre-cassini-8080.shtml for image and details. A valuation would also be very much appreciated.

Hello,

The impression mark with 2 opposing "L" letters is the Sevres mark, and it reads "Sevres" in script as well.

The material is porcelain, and this particular type is referred to as 'parian ware'.

High auction value of this bust is $2000 on today's market.
