I can't find any information on the Hummel "Meditation" with

Customer Question

I can't find any information on the Hummel "Meditation" with flowers in the basket. Every image I've seen so far has no flowers. My Hummel is 7" tall. On the bottom of the figurine - what looks like a bee is stamped into the figurine. Ink stamped: Made in S-Zone Germany. Other stamped marks include what looks like "H.s" and 11/7. Also stamped into the figurine is 13/2. What can you tell me about it. I watch your show a lot.

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.

See the following image. Is this your figurine?

Kind regards,

Thanks for helping me out Doris. Yes, that's my figurine. I was interested in the marking on the bottom of the figurine that said "made in S Zone Germany". I have never run across that one before. Also, if you could explain the other markings I would appreciate it.Thanks for your help so far.
Expert:  Doris replied 1 year ago.

Please send a photo of the marks.

Please know that certain factory ID marks are only known in factory records. The HS and 11/7 are such marks. The information about these marks is therefore not available to us. The other marks are identifiable.

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.

I would like to send a photo but the directions didn't seem to be apropos to the information I had in front of me. For instance I could not find the tab that said REPLY TO EXPERT to get me started. I need some help......or could I just snail mail you the photo?
Expert:  Doris replied 1 year ago.

Did you go to this address for instructions?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Mam, I did. But like I said, the first instruction was to "find the two tabs RATE TO FINISH and REPLY TO EXPERT" I couldn't find either of those prompts anywhere.
Expert:  Doris replied 1 year ago.

Unfortunately, the rate me was not part of the instructions.

You can try the very slow email method. It can take 24 hours.

This is the official explanation of how to send photos via email:

Please follow the directions exactly or they will not get to me.

Send the picture to ***@******.***

In the subject line put " Pictures for˜Doris in Antiques or Appraisals."
In the body of the message put, your user name and name.
Make sure to send these from the same address that you registered with

Just Answer, so they can verify who you are.

This method takes longer because the photos are sent to the Just Answer

techs who must forward them to me. It sometimes takes as long as 24 hours.
They will forward them to me and as soon as I get them I will contact you.

Kind regards,
