Is my bust salvageable?

I have, or had, a bust quite like this:

Unfortunately it did not survive a move, breaking raggedly at the neck. Have I any remote chance of repairing it myself and if so, HOW?

Is your bust ceramic or porcelain? You could try superglue...
Whether you attempt yourself or find a pro depends on what value you give it. I have fixed a Wedgewood dish and even I can't see the seam.
Ceramic is more porous and the repair will be more difficult and more visable.
