Customer Question
Good morning , I...

Good morning , I have several Hummel figures that my mom bought at Hummel in 1950. I am trying to find out how much there worth. And how I go about selling them.

Expert's Assistant: I always love having an appraiser look at my stuff. Sometimes its turned out to be surprisingly valuable. Tell us what else you do know and the Antiques Appraiser will be able to better assist you.

Just have pictures. I know they are very old and have a stamp from 1950 on them. She actually bought them from Hummel in Germany

Expert's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Antiques Appraiser should know?

Not that I can think of.

If pictures are too involved, you can just list the numbers on the bottom of each figurine since we already know these are from 1950.

I can tell you the value based on that number that should be on each impressed under the glaze on the bottom (not printed).

I did not realize that hitting the enter was going to send;
Hello, I did not realize that hitting the enter was going to send; sorry. I have a series of Hummel Figurines that my mother had for a number of years that I am trying to authenticate and determine their value. I purchased the two resource guides that you offer and have been trying to figure out what is what. These figurines do not have the kind of markings that I see in your guide. They do have the signature of Hummel on the base. The one I am looking at now has a number 63 stamped on the base and a marking that looks like a quill pen in an ink pot. Other than those, the only marking is the word 'Germany' on the underside. I wish that your guide had pictures of the pieces; it would help me figure things out. Also, what do the various categories mean, i.e. TMK 1, 2 etc.? I did not see that in the guide... maybe I did not look hard enough. I have pictures of all of the pieces, there are 18 pieces. … read more
