Customer Question

I have 7 Hummel figurines, all 7.5 inches, Happy Traveler, Merry Wanderer, The Serenader, Hear Ye Hear Ye, Celestial Musician, Little Fiddler, and The Cellist. They were bought new between 1968-1975 and un packaged. I need to put a value on them, but don't know. Can you help me?

Ed

Hi Ed,

My name is ***** ***** I would be happy to help with your Hummel figures.

You are quite right, there's a mind numbing amount of information about Hummels on line and much of it seems to be conflicting, so it's really hard if you're coming to it all for the first time, I sympathize.

So just to simplify things a little, can you confirm that all your seven have one of the following marks?

If different, can you attach a photo.

Let me hear back I'll be able to give you a full answer and values.

Many thanks,
Robert

PS. Meanwhile, please don't rate me until you get a full appraisal and a value from me. I mention this because you may get random prompts asking you to rate me before I've submitted an answer, ignore them, they are automatically generated by the site (it doesn't seem to be able to distinguish an answer from preparatory back and forth and information gathering) and don't come from me. Thanks, Robert
