I have a porcelaine of Ariadne on a panther in perfect

Customer Question

I have a porcelaine of Ariadne on a panther in perfect condition.
I have been told that according to the marking (an "L") very similar to the sterling signe, and with five dots on top, that could be the work Dreel, kister & , c. 1850-51, but also that the artist could have gone to work for MINTON about 1851.
I could send a photograph showing the porcelain includding the mark.
Could you help?

In order for me to properly assess what you have I will need to see images and clear, in-focus close-ups of the mark.

Please send the photos at your convenience. There is not an extra charge to provide more pictures here.

You can try emailing your images to *****@******.*** and write “For Nora/Antiques” in the subject line of the email.

Photos sent by email do not arrive to me directly nor instantly, they get forwarded to me by admin.
