I have what I believe is a porcelain ... something! It is

Customer Question

I have what I believe is a porcelain ... something! It is marked N in a C with 4 numbers. I think I've eliminated Camille Naudot , Newcomb College, French, and German sources. It is nearly 2 ft tall and very Victorian. There are 2 pieces: a tall base and a "banana boat" top all with flowers painted plus cherubs and other decorations. I don't even know what to call it! Any ideas?
JA: I always love having an appraiser look at my stuff. Sometimes its turned out to be surprisingly valuable. Is there anything else important you think the Antiques Appraiser should know?
Customer: It seems to be in perfect condition. It also came from the collection of an elderly gentleman who seemed to know what he was collecting, if you see what I mean.
