This figure belongs to a series of Commedia dell'Arte figures made at Vienna which are characterised by their square flat bases, see Reinhard Jansen (ed.), Commedia dell'Arte, Fest der Komödianten, Keramische Kostbarkeiten aus den Museen der Welt, Stuttgart, 2001, pp. 223-224, nos. 230-234; and also see p. 223, no. 230. for a similar figure of Dottore Bolloardo in the Österreichisches Museum für angewandte Kunst, Vienna. For a related example, but in a different pose and on a different base, see Otto von Falke and Josef Folnesics, Wiener Porzellan-Sammlung Karl Mayer, Vienna, 1928, no. 292.
