Description

While I do not believe they were painted by Hummel herself, both these angels (approximately 5 inches tall) have the TMK 1 mark, and initials (I think) of the painter. They are highly glazed porcelain naked angels, one beating a drum and the other an accordion. no cracks or chipping but there is some crazing.

Provenance

unknown (I think a doll collector since most everything at the auction was specific doll related)

What does this mean?

Hi Adrienne,

Thank you for contacting Mearto with your appraisal inquiry. Is it possible for you to take and upload a photo that shows the entire undersides of both pieces? I don't see the artist's signature so that would be helpful too.

Thanks!
Delia

The round one is a little harder to see the trademark, due to its reflection of light.. I can make out the top part and a bit of the w.. but pictures were uploaded, Thank you
