Indeed it is Carolyn. It's a wee bit early to shout about it, but I thought if I put it on now whilst it's in my mind I'll not forget! :)
Cheers!

Everything's good, but not had the same time to visit or post as I've been busy helping look after baby granddaughter :baby:  I'd forgotten how much hard work they are! :thd: but boy do I sleep well nowadays :sign_lol:  My "computer room" looks like a nursery, but I'm not complaining ;)
I've got a couple more trinkety things to photograph and post, so will try to make time to do them in the next few days or so.

Thank you!  :gcheer:

I love your figurine, can you tell us about him please?

This will be off topic in this thread of congratulations, but because you asked I will not make you disappointed. :)

With help from a collectorfriend (and perhaps recruited to this forum) I got this text translated:
"It is a unique sculpture made ​​in the yellow glaze typical for H?gan?s by Anders Hallberg (1870-1935), who was employed as a modeler at Skromberga company, which in 1904 merged with the H?gan?s Company.
In S.E. Vingedal's book ?Porslinsm?rken? (Porcelain Marks) it is written about the company Skromberga situated southwest of the town Helsingborg. Skromberga Works was since 1904 owned by the H?gan?s company.
A catalogue of Skromberga's products from 1903, before the merger, shows urns, vases, cachepots etc. in salt-glazed stoneware and lead-glazed earthenware designed by Anders Hallberg. At large, they all resembled the products manufactured by H?gan?s and after the merger Hallberg's items carried the H?gan?s' mark.
The accordion player is signed on the base ?A. Hallberg 1902?. There is an overglazed hairline right at the third numeral so it could be read as 1912. The figure hasn't got the H?gan?s mark and because of that I think it was made before the merger in 1904."

You can see more pictures of the accordon player here:

Again - big congratulations for this very nice forum and for the jubilee!
