mold number 185 Goebel W.Germany marking signed perfect condition
unknown, birthday gift for my mother
Thank you for contacting Mearto with your appraisal inquiry.
Hummel figures were incredibly popular among collectors in the 1950s-1990s and there are a lot of them on the market, unfortunately with less demand than supply so it is quite rare for individual pieces to be worth more than $5-50 each, at auction. The value can occasionally be boosted if the piece retains its original factory packaging.
If you'd like this appraisal to include dimensions, which is customary, please forward in the comments section the overall height and I'll update this ASAP.
Based on the photos and information provided, and subject to examination, this is:
