7.5" "Little Cellist" Hummel figurine. The mark on the base is a TMK1 crown along with "U.S. Zone Germany". However, the figurine looks and feels like a much more modern figurine.



It was my mother's.

Hi Kate,

Thank you for contacting Mearto with your appraisal inquiry.
This is from1935-49 but is in very good condition.
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 MJ Hummel collectible porcelain "Little Cellist" figurine
model 89/2, made in Germany by W Goebel, bearing the TMK-1 mark in use 1935-1949
7 1/2 inches
CONDITION: appears to be in good condition
PROVENANCE: inherited
*represents a fair-market value for auction purposes; retail or asking price may vary.

Please let us know if you have additional items to appraise, and thank you again for using Mearto.
