Customer Question
Hi. I have...

Hi. I have this old figurine of hunter holding a rifle and a bird. White color but I am not sure what it is made of - porcelain or some other material. The mark on the base is not painted but pressed - two lions or other animals are leaning from two sides on the castle or tower. Please help me to identify this item. Thank you

Expert's Assistant: 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?

I have pictures I can submit

This is a circa 1860 Staffordshire ironstone figurine depicting

a young boy with pheasant and rifle. The mark is an English or Scottish mark

with tower and lion and horse, but the exact maker is not known by this impressed mark.

The value of this piece is $125 to $150 retail.

Some sites that I recommend for selling are Offerup.com (local), Varagesale.com (local) , Wanelo.com, http://www.decluttr.com, Bonanza.com, Ioffer.com, Etsy.com,
Ebay and letgo.com (local).

You can also go to invaluable.com or liveauctioneers.com and search their directory for an auction house near you and consign to them.

Please do click the stars now for this one (bonuses are also welcome!), it is very important for me
to get good feedback for answering.
