hummel figurine joyful
01 January 2022
Description

Hummel figurine Joyful. One of several that my grandmother collected. From the online Hummel trademark guide, the mark looks to me like it might be the Stylized Bee in an incised circle. There is a stamped 53 next to it. One small chip is at the top of her right foot. The Joyful label is attached at the base on the back. She is 4 inches high.

Provenance

My grandmother collected a few Hummels in the 1950s and 60s to correspond with family birthdays. They usually appeared on top of our birthday cakes.

What does this mean?

Hi Eden,

Thank you for contacting Mearto with your appraisal query.
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.
Based on the photos and information provided, and subject to examination, this is:

A vintage Hummel hand-painted porcelain "Joyful" collectible figurine
made by Wm Goebel, West Germany circa 1960, bearing the underglaze mark in use from 1960-1972
marked 53 below, the lower rim bearing original factory label
4 inches high
CONDITION: appears to be in good condition; small chip loss to one foot
PROVENANCE: inherited
$30-50*
*represents a fair-market value for auction purposes; retail or asking price may vary.
