Madonna pice small version

Question:
I have a mini Madonna exactly like the large Madonna numbered #757 without the planter attached. It measures 2 3/4" high and weighs about 2oz’s. It also has the initials JW incised in the back on the bottom. Do you think this is a salesmans sample or a lunch hour piece, or what do you think? Thanks for your help. Debra
