Might anybody know anything about the history or value of this marked porcelain bust which appears to be #611 in a series? Thanks.

Good heavens! where did you get that?
Pre 1920...post I think 1885...or there abouts..
Upwards of $1000...how much up depends on who wants it....and if there is any hidden damage.
Very lovely!

It was inherited from a family member. I believe it was a wedding present to her circa 1900. There's a small piece missing from the end of one of the petals in the red flower on her shoulder. This can be seen in the side view. Do you think this would cause a significant reduction in value?

I don't know...it's an amazing piece. As they say at auctions..."Where would you find another like it?"
You are not seriously thinking of selling it are you?

No, we're just trying to find out more about the pedigree of it, and make sure that it's not worth some outrageous amount of money, as you sometimes see on Antiques Roadshow.

It's early...it says bohemia and not czech republic or something...I believe that after 1920 Royal dux, even with the pink triangle says something else. The E in the center is the owner's initial...Erlicher or something similar...later that factory was taken over by someone else and the letter is different...
AND it's a very lovely piece ornate and typical of the art nouveau period....not Deco like later pieces.
Somehow find a collector or dealer in fine porcelain figures and find out more.
As I often say, I know just enough to be dangerous!!...Enough to know that it's worth finding out more about.
