Dear Jennifer,

Thank you for the additional images and your patience. This is a ceramic figurine of a penguin made in the second half of the 20th century with the height of 16 1/2 inches. The figurine is probably made out of porcelain. under the bottom, the figurine is signed with Daly S.P.A Firenze and a hallmark of a crowned N. Also there is a paper label. The abbreviation S.P. A. can be deciphered as "società per azioni" which is a form of corporation in Italy and the name of the corporation is Daly.
An estimation would be between 50 to 100 USD.
This estimation is based on actual recent past recorded auction sales of comparables. Retail "asking prices" can be higher and vary.

With best regards,
Georg
