What does this mean?

Hi Jean,
Thank you for contacting Mearto with your appraisal inquiry.
We get a LOT of inquiries about Hummel figurines; while they have an inherent charm and were highly desirable among collectors in the 1950s-1970s, they have not retained the same interest among collectors today and there are far more on the market than there are buyers - it's a case of supply far outstripping demand. As a result, the values individual Hummel figures currently bring at auction (which are the values Mearto provides) are fairly low - most bring between $10-30 at auction and MOST auction houses will sell several Hummel figures together in a group, to minimize costs to the seller.
If you'd like this appraisal to include dimensions, which is typical, please forward the height of these figures and I'll update this ASAP.
Based on the photos and information provided, and subject to examination, this is:

A Hummel painted porcelain collectible "Photographer" figurine
Made by the Goebels factory, West Germany, bearing a mark in use 1979-1991
Model # 178
[dimensions]
PROVENANCE: gift
$10-15*
