Possibile Arnalt Figure-Possible Fake... Please help
Hello-I have a really BEAUTIFUL piece of bisque (I believe that's what you would call it as it does not have a shine). It's a vase with 2 children on it. One is on a swing and it looks like there might have been string strung through it as there are a few small holes in it.
The markings, once I look them up, appear to be some of the most faked marks known in the pottery business so now I am not getting my hopes up. Anyhow.. The mark on the bottom is of 2 crossed arrows, each with 3 'feathers' on it. They are blue. Underneath that, from what I can tell, are the numbers 745 (pretty clear) and then an "8" or a "B," (not so clear)
There is a LOT of detail on this and it's very delicate. If it's a fake (pretty sure it is..) then it's a good one!
Oh well. One can hope.
Any help would be GREATLY appreciated. I would love to pay for an appraisal but my husband just lost his job and I have been making some extra money selling on EBay. Not making enough just yet to do that as every little PENNY makes a BIG difference now.
Thank you in advance
