A superb bird figurine either from the later 18th but I think more likely early 19th century and made by KPM in Berlin. KPM used no painters mark like the red orb yet during this period thus you only have the blue scepter and impressed marks most of the time. It is very well modeled and hand painted. Really a very nice figurine! The piece is in super condition with just a little wear and a manufacturing flaw on top of his beak by the tip not later damage!
The figurine is 7.725 inches tall, 2.375 inches wide and 3.75 inches deep. It is marked with the under glaze blue scepter mark underneath as shown. As is the norm on their early birds the name is incised in the back base but obscured by the glaze and paint but after searching a while online for a matching bird I do think it says Seidenschwanz (Bohemian Waxwing) and that does seem to fit. If you like my goodies have a look at my other auctions for a lot more top maker pieces like Vienna, Sevres and so on. Photos are part of the description - if you need others just let me know exactly what you are looking for and I'll take care of it speedily!
