Hummel figurine found at flea market. No chips/scratches. Marked Hummel and has stamping on bottom.
Thank you for contacting Mearto with your appraisal inquiry.
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 (typically, the earlier ones bring towards the higher side of that range). 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:
