Royal Dux Bohemia- Angel on Clam Shell. 21cm base width,32cm base length and 25cm height. The letter E is impressed in the centre of the unglazed pink triangle, stamped with made in Czechoslovakia in blue print and imprinted with the numbers 2431 on base. I was told by family member that the item was brought out from England in the 1800's which indicates first period Dux 1800's-WWl but with the imprinted "Made in Czechoslovakia", perhaps the item is 2nd period 1919-WWll.

Thank you for your request. The presented object is a porcelain a porcelain shell with the measurements of 25 cm height and 32 cm length. It shows an angel or Amor sitting on the top of a clam. This piece is marked by Royal Dux Bohemia and has the model number 2481. The red triangle hallmark was in use between 1900 and 1918. This piece is also stamped with "Made in Czechoslovakia" which could just happen after 1918. Possibly this piece was produced in the years after the foundation of Czechoslovakia in 1918 and under the usage of older models.
This piece is in good condition and there are no serious damages visible.
An estimation would be between 100 to 200 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,
