Q: I need help identifying the maker of a vintage porcelain ballet dancers figurine that belonged to my grandmother. It has this mark with curved lines through the letter “S” on the bottom.

A: Your figurine was made by Fasold & Stauch, a company in Bock-Wallendorf, Thuringia, Germany. It was in business from 1903 to 1972. This mark was used beginning in 1914. The company made figurines, dolls heads, clock cases, and gift items. They made several figurines of ballet dancers. Value about $150 to $175.
