What does this mean?

Hi Margaret,

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. Yours is a nice early example
Based on the photos and information provided, and subject to examination, this is:

A vintage Hummel hand-painted porcelain "Wayside Harmony" collectible figurine
Made by W. Goebels, Germany, withTMK-2 mark in use from 1950-1955
featuring a child seated on a fence with a singing bird, marked underneath and impressed 111 3/0 6F
8 cm (3-1/8 inches) high
CONDITION: appears to be in good condition
PROVENANCE: acquired in Berlin in the 1950s, thence by inheritance
$30-50*
*represents a fair-market value for auction purposes; retail or asking price may vary.
