She is pristine white with the exception of her painted toes, muzzle, inside of her ears, and her gentle eyes. I tried to show as much as I could in the pictures. She is a graceful figurine standing right at 4 1/4" tall from her elegant head down to her gracefully crossed paws and 8" long.She has no chips, cracks, or issues in her glaze. For more information please see the photos. I apologize for any fuzzy pictures. I have come to realize that photography is not my best suit. Finally, if anyone know anything furtherI would really appreciate the information. I have a vase with this same mark and would truly appreciate the information.

Augarten Porcelain takes its name from the palace and its adjacent park grounds, where the factory is located, in the Leopoldstadt district of the Austrian capital Vienna. After Meissen porcelain, Augarten is the second oldest producer of hard paste porcelain, tracing its origins as far back as 1718 when it obtained a “privilege” from the emperor. Ever since the factory came under Imperial ownership 1744, works from the Augarten manufactory were marked with the coat of arms of the Dukes of Austria.
