I recently purchased a very heavy Terrier figurine. It has no markings of any kind. How do I find out who made it?

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.

Well I bought it for $4.00 at a garage sale. It is approximately 5 inches long and three inches tall. It's a Scottish terrier and I think it is milk glass.
