Customer Question

I have 4 Hummels that belonged to my mother. I looked up the marks online and it appears that the oldest one is a little boy sitting on a stool with hearts on the side. He is reading a newspaper, the outside of which says "Daily News." He is wearing slippers that are way too big for him. Besides the old mark on the bottom, there is a number "184."
JA: I always love having an appraiser look at my stuff. Sometimes its turned out to be surprisingly valuable. Is there anything else the Antiques Appraiser should be aware of?
Customer: No, I guess that's all of the details

Hello and welcome! My name is Doris.
I have been an antiques collector, dealer and appraiser for over 56 years.
I will be pleased to help you.

Please send me a photo of the figure and one of the marks on the bottom.

You may need to use the macro function (flower icon) of your camera to get a good clear photo of the marks.

If you cannot get a good photo, then sketch the marks and take a photo of the sketch.

To send photos you may use the "reply to expert" or "add files" in the blue box link on your reply page or the "paper clip" found in the toolbar you see on your reply page.
Please do not send in ZIP format. The jpg or jpeg format works best.

An explanation of this method can be found here:

I may not need a photo if the following image is your figure.

Kind regards,

Kind regards,
