Provenance

My mother’s best friend collected hummel’s for years. As she doesn’t have any children or really any family left, she has decided to give them to me to sell in my mother’s antique booth that I have kept running since she passed away in 2018. I have a ring around the Rosie figurine, too, and tons of others. It’s been an arduous process trying to prove these...

Good afternoon, Courtenay,

Thank you for contacting Mearto with your appraisal inquiry.
We get a LOT of appraisal inquiries for Hummel figures; for the most part, they do not retain nearly the value that people paid retail for them. Sometimes not even one-tenth of the price, which is not easy to tell people. It is not uncommon for small single-figure Hummels to fetch $25 (or less ) apiece at auction, and many auction houses will sell many figures together in a group, making it a little difficult to know what individual pieces are worth.

Based on the photographs and information provided, and subject to examination, this is:

A vintage Hummel polychromed porcelain figural group
Made by Goebels, West Germany, circa 1957

8 1/4 by 7 1/2 inches
PROVENANCE: collected by mother's friend
