I got her in a box with a heap of plates (I like mosaic) and stuff for $10 - she is a LLadro from Spain and worth at least $85 AUS! Not bad! And the vase was made by an Italian potter who came to Australia - worked in NSW at a pottery and then started his own for a time at Maryborough, Qld, where this actually came from. I picked up in Hervey Bay, Qld with a bunch of other stuff for $6 - and it is worth approx $45 Aus. I have been in touch with the potter, Joe Santori!
