I searched for the backstamp on my porcelain figurine on the net and I found it matches the criteria for a Capodimonte, blue crown and N plus signature under glaze, this means Naples 1771-1834. Maybe I am right, maybe not, maybe someone can help me.
But what I need to know more is if this art work holds some value considering it is a little damaged. It represents a man leaning on his cane (a long stick with a bow on its top) maybe he is a shepherd, but the very top of that pole is missing, nothing else. It is about 14 cm. tall, it has detailed fingers, hair, etc. Only if you look closer you can see the small defect. Or is it a forgery?
Thanks for your opinion.
