Thank you for submitting your item for appraisal. This appears to be a modern chinese reproduction of an earthenware han dynasty statue of a court lady. The colouring is definitely modern, the attached dirt alludes that it was dug up and therefore pretends to be a piece from antiquity - which it is not. Unfortunately this item has a purely decorative value and of course a high sentimental value to you.
