Volkstedt Huntress Figurine

This is a figurine of a lady with her dog - like meant to depict Diana the Huntress - made by Volkstedt around 1775 though I have also found an attribution to Kelsterbach which I find unlikely though the coloration fo this piece is simple enough to maybe fit. I couldn't figure her out until my buddy Tom helped me out a bit so thanks Tom!! :) The figurine is well modeled and painted with her holding a bow in her left hand, a quiver over her left shoulder and a dog by her side. Simple colors make this one elgant figurine! The figurine displays nicely but is in fairly bad shape. She must have dropped at some point and was reglued. Her head was off, the arrows in her quiver are broken off, she was broken through the middle with large chips and there is a chip to the base rim that took the dog's left front paw along with it. All this sounds much worse than it is and the the piece still displays really nicely! The figurine is not marked. She is 7.375 inches tall, 4.125 inches wide and 3.75 inches deep. Please email me for more information or other pictures.
