Ornamental Hummel Christmas Figurines
These miniaturized figurines are made to hang off of tree branches, hooks and corners. They still use the same adorable art style as their larger cousins. Some models are only available as Christmas ornaments, while others are miniaturized versions of the collectible figurines.
Ornamental Hummel Figurines are made small to keep them as light as possible. If features on the full sized figurines could easily break away when they are reduced in size. They may strengthen the design by moving the parts closer together or by filling in any gaps. An example of this would be with the Goose Girl Hum Num 47#. They changed the base into a grassy texture so that they could more easily build up the base around the geese, offering them a better perch in which to anchor.
