This exquisite porcelain figurine is made in Hungary. It measures approximately 9 inches tall and 3-1/2 inches wide at its base. The seamstress is dressed in the prettiest folk costume that has an array of colors including black, blue, green, red, teal, white and yellow. She is captured in between her embroidery with her work that sits on her lap. There is an incredible amount of hand-painted detail.

The porcelain marks are stamped in green on the bottom side of the base of the porcelain figurine. The number 63 is written in black.
When reading the "1831," some have mistakenly interpreted it to be "4834" because of the style of the "1." The words "kézzel festett" are Hungarian for hand-painted. This figurine is item #8065-2081 and sells for $129.95 at Klugex.com.

What about Hollohaza? The town of Hollóháza is located in the Zemplén Hills, near Hungary's northeastern border with Slovakia. In 1831, the Hollóháza Porcelain Factory was established there.
