Customer Question
I have two figurines...

I have two figurines, white porcelain, with a blue R on the bottom with the number "1762" under that.

Expert's Assistant: I always love having an appraiser look at my stuff. Sometimes its turned out to be surprisingly valuable. Tell us what else you do know and the Antiques Appraiser will be able to better assist you.

They are figurines of goddesses sitting. I suspect they are English parian ware. Finely detailed with them sitting on a wall or stone seat.

Expert's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Antiques Appraiser should know?

Nope, only marks of them at the "R 1762"

Never mind, I was asking a one time question and do not need a monthly long term service. I'll go to Amazon and order books that can answer my question.
