Faylay Spelter but with NAc signature?

greenspun.com : LUSENET : Art Deco Society of Washington : One Thread

Please if anyone can help:-I am completing a assignment on Art Deco and I have to value and confirm a sculpture. The figure I have is a lady with a spear (Helen or Artemis?) cast in spelter and mounted in limestone. I have been informed that this is a piece by Faylay but the signature on the base plate is NA and a mark that could be a c or a u? I have found a limited information on the internet and nothing at my local library. If anyone can confirm this mark, the approx. age of piece and an estimate of value I would not only get a distinction but would be most grateful. (Le Verrier foundry?)

Thank you so much
