Unknown Faience Putto

This is a figurine of a putto with a flower basket made not of porcelain but some kind of faience. We originally thought it might be a very early Hoechst piece but after comparing them to pieces in the Hoechst museum accompanied by Mr. Reber we concluded that it is not. So still an unknown maker. It is surely an antique piece and from the 18th century or at least close to it. It is handpainted very well. The piece is in OK condition - left arm was reglued and there is some missing paint here and there. The putto is 5.25 inches tall and marked underneath with a red wheel mark. Please email me for more information or other pictures.
