Some kind folks at Whadja Find? pointed me towards this item potentially being a clock mantle piece.

What I know: no identifying marks (i've tried using flour and water to make marks more visible), the side of what she is seated on is an Acanthus plant, she is likely holding castanets in addition to the tambourine, the headdress may be baltic.

If there are any ideas out there related to maker/age/value that would be great i've checked around online and can't find anything like it!

John,  Your statue looks to be circa 1800, pot metal, top for a mantle clock.  They usually bronze coated, these pieces for appearance.  From what I have found, most of these statues don't have a maker mark.  I really enjoy the look of these little statues & have picked up 3 at auctions.  You have a beautiful piece.

Thanks Brenda, Have you been able to find any info related to place/company of origin of yours? The skin of the woman on mine was bronze (I can make out a little paint) and her dress was red, there also may have been green but that could just be the metal surface.
