Provenance

These have been in a display case in my Aunt's apartment and inherited by us after her death. The "bee" is visible and all are TMK 2 of dates between 1950 and 1963, with embossed numbers bought in Germany after WWII while she served in the US Army. They have neither been exhibited nor offered for sale.

What does this mean?

Hi Ralph,

Thank you for contacting Mearto with your appraisal inquiry.
Hummel figures were incredibly popular among collectors but as a result, the market is somewhat innundated with them and less demand than supply, which keeps the price low - between $10-30 each.
Based on the photos and information provided, and subject to examination, this is:
