Hummel Figurines have been a part of many peoples lives over the year. There is a Hummel Figurine out there for almost every occasion; starting from “A Flower For You” to “Zealous Xylophonist”. Boys and girls doing everyday duties from picking apples to delivering letters.

Now you may want to find out the age of the Hummel Figurine you remember so fondly.

Find the Age of your Hummel form the Hummel Date Stamp Chart
To find out how old your Hummel is look on the underside of your Hummel Figurine and find the Goebel stamp or makers mark. This mark is the official trademark of Goebel. The look of the trademark has varied since 1935. See the Hummel date stamp chart below; every authentic M.I.Hummel figurine will have a Goebel stamp on its underside. Most of the known marks used over the years are shown here. Nevertheless, from time to time, a rare and undocumented variation may surface.
