I spent about two hours trying to decipher the makers mark on this "Franz Witter Dresden Lace Porcelain Figurine". I discovered it was actually a genuine Dresden piece that was rebranded for international sale by a third party in the 1950s. A collector in Russia of all places bought it for $306! Had I not done my research, we wouldn't have gotten twenty bucks for it. Old figurines are very collectable, but brand and condition are everything.
