Antique Clay Sculpture

I acquired this interesting piece recently from someone who sells items from estate sales and I would like to know more about its creator and about its value. According to the writing on its bottom, it was made by a Francisco Martinez in Guadala(ja)ra, in 1892.The figurine's right arm is missing and there are couple minor nicks but considering its fragile material and its age, it is in really nice condition. Its incredible detailed and life-like and that is why I think that the sculptor was maybe a well-known artist of his time. But even if he was just a talented amateur, I would greatly appreciate any information about the value of this artwork. Thank you very much!
