Due to an overwhelming number of Hummel value request that I receive, I had to close the comments on this page. I get 100’s of value requests weekly and it is very time consuming to reply to every request. If you couldn’t find the value of your Hummel on the Hummel Value Chart you may want to consider getting a copy of my Complete Hummel Price Guide. I have made the price of this guide affordable. Each Hummel in this guide has a higher value than the purchase price of the value guide.

Hummel #63 is ‘Singing Lesson’. You can date your Hummel by using the trademark on the bottom of your Hummel figurine and going to my article ‘Find out the age of your Hummel Figurine’. The average retail price for Your Hummel is $150 a Fair market price (auction price) would be about 1/3 ($45). Condition of the Hummel, date, and current market condition can affect the value of your Hummel Figurine.
I have a hummel figurine from my grandmother and would like to know more. It has a V with a bee and a W. Germany underneath (I researched this and found it means it is from 1960 – 72)is this correct?
I has a number 87. It is a boy with a water pitcher in the right hand and carrots (or turnips?)in the left hand.
What is it called and what might be its value?
This Hummel is #87 “For Father”. Approximate values are Retail $179.00 (USD) Auction Price $90.00 (USD) Ebay $90.00 (USD). Depending on the trade mark and condition the value can be as high as $350.00 (USD).

I have two Hummels. Do you know their approximate value?
One is an angel with accordion, dated 1967 on the bottom- perfect condition, #233 or 235?
The other is a holy water font with two angels, #146. It appears to be old, as it has the old fashioned W. Germany marking. Again perfect condition.
Hummel Figurine #146 is Holy Water Font, Angel Dust. Values for this Hummel vary depending on the date stamp of your Hummel figurine. I have included prices for all the date stamps. These values are retail values. Auction value can be as low as 1/3 of the retail prices. With any auction the prices can also be more depending on the rarity of the Hummel. Ebay prices can be even lower. The number is the date stamp. These prices are based on good condition. If there is any condition issues or repairs the price will be much lower.

2 = $125 – 150
3 = $$80 – 100
4 = $75 – 80

I have a hummel #86 It is a girl with a bango from West Germany can you tell me an estimated value.
I have an Hummel Font. It is approx. 4 1/2 in. tall and is a wall hanger. It shows a child ( or maybe an angel ) picking a flower with flowers in its other hand. It was given to my mother in 1941 by her godparents. It has Germany printed on it as well as the number 9. Etched in it are the number 206., MI.Hummal. in cursive, and the c w interlaced with the wings. I would like more information about this piece.
I believe this is Hummel Figurine #206 “Holy Water Font, Angel Cloud” if from the time period you described it’s retail value is $350 – $500 (USD) Auction value $100 – $225 (USD).
I found your website and thought you could help. We have 2 Hummel figurines but I have no idea how much they are as. I cannot tell what trademark they have. Would you be able to help?
The first is Sound the Trumpet, and it has all original packaging and documentation. The box says Hum 457, 01-457-01-9, #303, 7,5 cm/3 inch
The second is Serenade, again with all original packaging but just a card for documentation. The box says Hum 85/4/0, 01-085-40-6, #413, 7,5 cm/3 inch.
Both are in flawless condition – basically have been in the box and in storage since the 1980s. The boxes do have a little bit of wear on the corners from storage.
Thank you for your help! I truly appreciate it.
Hummel 457 appears to be a 79-90 trademark, and its retail value is 140 – 145, auction value is 60-80.
Hummel 84 appears to be a 79-90 trademark retail value is 130 – 135, auction value is 40-70
My grandmother has collected Hummels since the 50’s she has approx. 17 Annual plates starting with the first one what would these be worth? She passed away and we are looking to get our Hummels priced. My mother thinks that 1971 was the first year they started the plates.
Can you tell me what years your Hummel plates are?
They start in 1971 and have the progression of 17 years 71-88. All are in great condition. Also, my mother has a very large collection of peices. How could we get the numbers to you to appraise them? Do you have another e-mail address we could send the information to you when we get it all gathered?
I have a 1957 Little Helper 73. How much is it worth?
$200-210 (USD) Retail
$125-175 (USD) Auction
This Hummel is a final issue piece.
I have a M.J. Hummal with a No. 126 above the name M.J. Hummal and the V with a bee and W. Germany “under” that marking. Towards the right bottom of the piece is a black “m” looking letter. The piece is of a boy and a girl leaning out a window with the boy holding a red flower and a flower box with 4 panes and red flowers in the flower box at the bottom of the window. Do you know the value of this? I have looked and can not locate this particular piece. Thank you.
Tonya, I have a similar piece that I can’t find anything about. The flower box on my piece has five “panes”, and there are shutters on the open window with heart cut-outs plus white curtains behind the children with red flowers. It has ’25’ next to the left of the MJ Hummel on the rectangular bottom (it’s a plaque and has two small holes drilled at the top for hanging – one inch “frame” of porcelain around the children). There is a small stylized bee on the back and ‘Western Germany’ stamped in black. Also, ’47’ is indented in the porcelain by the bee imprint. Any info on this piece?
I hadn’t heard from you about the plates thought I would ask again dates are from 1971-1988. We also have a large list of Hummels but we haven’t yet looked at all of them. Who would by them if we were to sell them in the next month or so?
These plates sell at auction on average from $30-120 (USD) per plate. The average value is $30-60(USD). eBay prices will be about 1/2 of the auction value.
HI, I have just came across a set of 10 1929 “The Waverley Encyclopaedia – of general information” books. I do not know much about them and I was hoping someone would be able to tell me anything about their value, as I haven’t been able to find out much about them. If anyone could help then that would be great.
Unfortunately these books are not of much value about $25-45. Most old encyclopedias do not retain value.
I have a Hummel which I believe is called Brother, although it has a very old sticker on the bottom that somebody has labelled “our hero”. The boy is wearing a jacket that looks greyish and streaky rather than the solid blue ones I see on similar figurines.
The Hummel name is engraved on the side of the base, and there is a number 95 engraved on the bottom, with what looks like a letter u painted beside it. The funny thing is that the only other marking on the bottom is a faintly engraved marking etched into it that I cannot clearly see at all – even with a magnifying glass. I have looked at old Hummel markings and I’m not able to tell if it’s similar. There is a very large hole in the middle of the base so would have been hard to mark.
This Hummel was purchased by a family member probably in the 1940’s.
Any idea of the value, and why the marking is so unclear?
Thanks very much!
The estimated retail value of aa 40’s HUM 95 “Brother” Hummel figurine is. $700 – $800 auction value would be around $350-$400. These estimates will vary with condition of the Hummel figurine.
As for the markings being so unclear I am not sure why this has occurred. The hole in the base does it look original to the piece or could it have been broken at some point?
Can you please email me a picture of your Hummel figurine. You can email the picture to [email protected].
I have a pair of Hummel lamps with the number of 0224 and 0225 on the bottom. I did not see them on your website. Are they of value?
I recently inherited my mother’s collction of 203 Hummels. Most are pre-would war 2. They were appraised in 1976 at over $100,000.00. I’m interested in finding a reputable, insured broker to aid me in liquidating the collection. Thank you, J…
I can suggest a few good auction houses to sell your Hummel figurines at. I will just need to know the nearest major city you are located by and in what country. I can also help with any information you may need or question you may have with the auction process. You can email the information directly through the contact form on this page.
I thought you might be interested in this information. It will tell you a little more about why the markings on your Hummel are double dated.
Some Crown Marks have been found that appears twice on the same piece, more often one mark incised and the other stamped. This is known as the “Double Crown Mark”. Sometimes you will also find an earlier trademark as well as an older trademark on the same piece. This has been done because the figurine piece was fired during a trademark transition period. The figurine was fired under one trademark but was not painted until the new trademark was implemented. “Double Marks” such as these are considered to be the latter mark and are appraised as such
I was just wondering how someone as affluent as you in Hummel Art would not take the time or consideration to assess a request. Perhaps you are so confident in yourself it would not accure to you what that means to another human being.
“Double Crown Marks” are what they are as you so eloquently put it in your paragraph.
A doubled over figurine # is completely differant. An example would be (#.94 with 82 over it)
To put it this way let me correct you; a “Doubled Over Stamp” is a “major deviation” unlike a “Double Mark”.
Remember that as much as one would like to rewrite history; there will always be someone to stand-up against lazy misconsiderations of the wise.
I inherited two Hummel figurines from my step father. The one (#195)I found with no trouble on your chart, but I can’t find #203. Can you help with name and approximate value?
Have a few hummel figures that belonged to my mom buti would like to know about one. It is no 123. its two boys linking each other. the unusal part is that at the bottom it is signed by copn w. goebel. thanks
Without knowing the age of your Hummel figurine I can only give you a range estimate.
HUM 123 “Max and Moritz”
Value of this Hummel can be anywhere from $279 to $800 depending on the year made. These are retail values. At auction you will usually see 1/3-1/2 the retail value.
Thank you very much for your reply. I have looked everywhere on the figurine but i can not find a date. On the base at the back behind the two boys legs there is the name m j hummel engraved as well as the othr markings i already told you about. Is there some way i can tell the date so that i can get a more accurate value?
I have another piece i would like to ask you about? Its a candle holder with three girls sitting around in a circle. One is playing a guitar–an accordian–a trumpet. The no is 37. It has the blue v with the bee in blue “ink” and beside it – it has the same marking engraved into the base. Around the side of the base is engraved m j hummel. Again i can not find a date anywhere.
Again i appreciate your help. regards aileen
You can use this Hummel age guide to date your Hummel. Hummel did not put dates on there figurines till the 1990’s (this date refers to when the artist completed painting the figurine) All Hummel(s) have a back stamp on them. This mark is usually on the base of the Hummel figurine. I am researching the value of Hummel number 37 I will let you know the value shortly.
Hello again. I must say that you are very informative. I looked up your hummel age guide and mu hummel marking for the two boys (no 123) appear to be the 1950s. either the first or second diagram on the left side. with that in mind could you perhaps give another shot at narrowing down the price range? By the way i live in Ireland and not much is known around here. My candle holder appears to be around the same time but the it has germany writen in black on this one(no 37). Again i appreciate your knowledge.
I bought a Hummel today and it says Hab’ was Gutes and Sweet Freedom on the back of it. After doing some research I believe that on Sweet Freedom she should be holding a flag and on Sweet Treats she should be holding a cookie. On the bottom it has the flag with special edition on it. It is also signed if that makes a difference. Anyways is this indeed Sweet Freedom or could this be a mistake of Sweet treats and Sweet Freedom? Any help would be great. Thanks so much, Cathy
This ornament is a US only variant called “Sweet Freedom” and was released in June ’04. it has the girl holding the flag and a SE US flag backstamp. This was priced at $59 at its time of sale.
I have a Hummel that I found in my Godmother’s things. It is a Holywater font with a child (Jesus?). It has 2 stamps…one from the 1935 era and a V with bumblebee from the 1950-1955 era and it has the #167 on it. Can I get some information? Thanks!
This is Hummel 167 ‘Holy Water Font, Angel with Bird. Your figurine has 2 datestamps on it because it is a transitional piece. The blank figurine was stamp in the 1935 era and the finished piece was stamped with the 1950-55 datestamp. The retail price for this Hummel figurine is approximately $75.00 (USD)
I have the 1977 & 1975 plates. Can you give me information or prices, please?
The average fair market value for Hummel plates are $35.00-55.00 (USD)
I have a 1942 Ars Sacra Hummel of a girl holding a doll. It has both a B Hummel and a Herbert Dubler stamp on it. Where can I find its value? None of the price lists I’ve seen include Ars Sacra.
Is there a number on the bottome of this figurine?
I also have a boy similar to the one at the top of this page- taking a big step forward, umbrella in the right hand but a dog is on his left side. It has the M I Hummel stamp on the top of the base but no V mark on the bottom. There is an ink stamp that says Made in Germany and a tiny number stamp that is hard to read but might be 01 or 61. I’ve seen this figure on Ebay called “Striding Along” but the face and position of the head are slightly different on mine. The raised portion on the bottom is an oval rather than a circle like my other MI Hummels. Is this a counterfeit or could it be a very early MI Hummel? It looks older than my other ones. Also, I don’t find “Striding Along” on any price lists.
This Hummel is Hummel #7 it is called Merry Wanderer. There are many variations of this Hummel figurine. I would need to know the size of this figurine and the age to give you a accurate value. The value has a huge range for this Hummel, anywhere from $125-2000. Without seeing a picture and knowing some information I can not give you an estimated value.
Hi! I have recently inherited a small collection of Hummels and would really appreciate some help in pricing these fine pieces. They are Berta Hummels made by Claus-Peter Wahner for Goebel:
#1 – “Fetch” with COA #A965
#2 – “Surprise Encounter” with COA #A692
#3 – “Tugging At Your Heartstrings” with COA #A383
Any help is greatly appreciated!
These Hummel names and numbers do not match. Is there any other numbers on your Hummel figurines? These numbers should be on the bottom of the base along with a Goebel backstamp. You can use my Hummel age guide to help you find the age of your Hummel figurines.
I have a hummel #86 of a little girl hholding a basket with one hand and a flower with the other. the bottom has a stamp of a v with a bee on top of it and the word germany below. Can you tell me it’s value
The approximate retail value for Hummel figurine #86 ‘Happiness’ is $125.00 (USD).
My mother has a small painting signed by Hummel. She would like to know it’s worth. It shows a boy and a girl sitting on a fence. He is playing the flute whilst they are looking at some resting sheep. Can you tell me anything about the value?
Unfortunately these paintings do not have much value. They are worth about $25.00 (USD) on average.
I have a hummel # 80, i believe it is a little boy and a little girl standing under a big umbrella. The boy is holding a walking stick.
The Hummel number 80 is a different Hummel then you have described. Can you please check the number on the bottom?
I have an Exclusive Edition club piece called “I Wonder”#241. Could you please tell me the value of this piece.
Hummel ‘I Wonder’
Retail approximate value is $300.00 (USD)
Auction approximate value is $125.00 (USD)
I have a Hummel, but I have looked and looked and can’t find any information on it. It’s an angel in a red outfit and is a candle holder. On the bottom, it says “Gra 259”, has the Goebel marking and has “1965” on it. Can you help me?
From your description this sounds like it maybe a Goebel figurine not a Hummel. Goebel used the same backstamp for their Hummels and Goebel figurines till the 1990’s.
I have several Hummel figurines that I cannot seem to locate the value of,
#239 (smaller figurine)
#374 Lost Stocking
#110 Let’s Sing
#769 Bird Duet
I will need to know the age of these Hummels. You can date them by the backstamp on the bottom of the figurines. You can then compare the stamp to the following age guide. Hummel 239 has a A-E version each one is a different Hummel.
I have a (rubber?) Hummel doll that my uncle bought for me in the 1950’s when he was stationed in Germany. She’s about 12 inches tall and is wearing a brown and white cotton dress with a white apron and brown cloth shoes. Any idea as to its value? Thank you!
I am not sure of the value of this doll. I would advise consulting an Hummel specialist. You can also consult an auction house for an estimate of value.
I have a Hummel # 111 with a blue (V) on bottem and M.J. Hummel on back of figurines base, W. Germany marking, with date od 1938 on bottom. This piece in perfect condition. Can you please tell me the vaule of it.
Can you tell me if this Hummel is 5.50 inches?
Hi There I have a Hummel Figurine APPLE TREE GIRL # 141/1 4″ Tall.
It also has what looks to be a number stamp 75 on it.
But the thing thats getting me here is the STAMP. It’s a Blue V with a bee and then under it it says germeny, but in front of it there is no (W.) I am not able to maek out what it is. But it looks like a round circle, or a blue round cylinder shape to it. Any help with this?
After the war they stopped using the W. in front of the Germany. As for the mark you are describing I would need to see a picture of it. You can email one to me at [email protected].
I have a #196 Telling her secrets from 1948 all the marking excellent condition, any value?
This Hummel comes in a variety of sizes can you please tell me how tall this Hummel figurine is?
I have a Ars Sacra Hummel with the date 1942 on it and the foil stamp on the bottom. The figure is of a boy sitting down with his legs straight out in front of him and a bird is sitting on his shoes. It is approximately 3 inches tall. Can you tell me the value.
There should be a number on the bottom of the figurine. Can you please tell me what number this is?
There is no number on the bottom of the figurine. The bottom is covered in green felt and has a foil sticker that reads: Authentic Hummel Figure produced by Ars Sacra made in U.S.A
The only other marking on the figure is along the side of the base which reads (C) Herbert Bubler Inc. 1942
Hope that helps
Ooops, a typo…should say “Herbert Dubler”
Just wanted to check back to see if you got my post regarding the lack of a # on my figurine. If you have any idea what it might be worth, I would love to know.
Any luck finding information on my Hummel?
I was asking you about a hummel back in may. I sent you a photo as you asked; Just wondering if you have had a chance to track it down,
Hummel 123 ‘Max and Moritz’ Trademark 2 estimated value is 250
Can you tell me anything about the clear glass bookend Hummel figurines? I have the Goose Girl but there is no number or marking. Are these just rip-offs?
There is a line of crystal Hummel figurines but I do not see Goose Girl on the list. This does not mean it was not made by Hummel. The avg. price of these figurines is 40-60 (USD)
Hello. I hope you can help me. I have a hummel with, I believe the number 56/0. It is a little boy with rabbits and a basket. I cannot seem to locate this number. It is stamped with a v with a bumblebee and w.germany.
This is actually Hummel number 58/0 ‘Playmates’ The trademark you describe is TMK 4. Estimated value is 175.
I have a hummel that I got from my grandmother. It is marked on the bottom with a2627b and it is a little boy with a boot in front of him and he is putting a fish in the boot. I know nothing of the year name or value. I hope you can help. Thanks Ronda
The number you gave me does not match the Hummel numbering system. Hummel uses a 1-4 digit number that can usually be found on the bottom of the figurine. Please check the number and let me know if you find one.
Did you ever find any information on this figurine. I received the same one from my grandmother and I’m not sure of the orgin.
No I did not find any other info on mine. My grandmother is no longer living and she swore it was a hummell. It looks genuine to me but I can find no signatures or anything on it. If you find anything out then let me know and I will do the same. Thanks Ronda
I have several Hummel figurines from my Grandmother and cannot find them anywhere on the price sheets. I was wondering if you could help me find what their worth is: 98/0, 94 3/0, 130, 131 or 171 (girl sweeping a broom), 57/0, 239/0 and 389.
I also have 46, 81, 82, 111 3/0, 199/0 as well which I found in the price list.
Any help you could provide would be greatly appreciated.
Iam seeking information on two Hummel or Goebel bears that i have . one of the bears is in standing position and about six inches tall. it has a mark on its foot of a blue V with a Bee . The other bear is sitting and is about three inches high and on the base it has a blue V with Bee also inpressed in the clay is the initials C.W 33 . Although i have other items of hummel and goebel … i am really interested to find out as much as i can about these two bears . As the detail on them is absolutely superb ! And as of yet i have not been able to find out any think about them although i have searched through numerous items on E. bay and other websites over the past five years . Any information whats so ever would be most welcome . Thankyou
These sound like Goebel figurines. Goebel used the same trademark for Hummel and Goebel figurines until the 1990’s. The 33 should be there figurine number. Is there any other numbers on the bottom of the figurines?
I have already submitted a question .. but forgot to add the 12 to my email address . And am there fore going to send my question in again.I have two bears of either hummel or goebel origin … the first bear is standing up and about 6 inches tall on the base of its foot there is a blue V and a Bee . on the second bear which is in a sitting position and approx 3 to 4 inches tall there is a blue V and a Bee and impressed in the clay is the initials C.W 33 any information at all on the said two items would be welcome as i do have other items of hummel and goebel . but these two pieces really interest me and i have not been able to get any information on them for the past 5 years .
Hello again! I also have 2 hummel collectors plate. “Squeaky Clean” and “Little Musicians” and I’m trying to find if they are worth anything. Thanks for your help!
Hello. I think i made a mistake of one of my posts. 🙂 I needed help finding the value of a Nativity hummel figurine. It has Mary holding baby jesus on a donkey, she is wearing a blue cover. the trademark has the “V” by W. Goebel and W. Germany code Rob 405/A. thanks for helping out! I enjoy looking at your answers here!
There are 4 Hummel Nativity sets. I will need the number off the bottom of the figurine to identify which one this is.
I have three wooden figurines that look like they should be Hummels until you realize they are wood. Sizes are approx. 5 inches, they are children, colors are subdued like Hummel colors. What are these? I know they were purchased by my mother-in-law in Germany (has German price tags on bottom). They would have been purchased in ’70s or ’80s.
I have not heard of wooden Hummels. There is always a chance they are prototypes or they could have been made to resemble Hummels. Hummels where very popular and reproduced in may different ways. Is there a number on the bottom of these figurines?
the only thing on the bottom is the price and I would bet it is in German $. I am fairly certain they were purchased in Germany and you are probably correct that they are prototypes. Thanks for responding.
I just recieved a Hummel from my grandmother that passed away. I had never even heard of a hummel. It’s a girl with her hands in her pocket and she is just standing there. The number on the bottom is 95 43. The 95 is larger than the 43. And there are no / marks. Can you give me an idea about this hummel?
Can you tell me how the figurine is dressed? Is it in winter wear or summer wear?
It is in Summer wear. I guess. It has on brown shorts and a blue jacket. She also has on boots and a hat.
Did you find anything out?
boy in apple tree …its a lamp…number 229 and 230…girl one also
The price on this lamp vary greatly from trademark to trademark. I would need to know what trademark you lamp is to give you a accurate value. You can use this age guide to help you with this information.
My wife just received a 1938 Hummel “let’s sing” with a full bee. I believe the numbers are 110/0. Could you tell me the value?
The Full Bee trademark started in 1950. If this has a full bee if would be from 1950-1956. Hummel 110/0 ‘Let’s Sing’ $125-150 (USD).
i have a hummel that has a number 204 it is a little girl with a basket and flowers can you tell me anything about it please
This is Hummel 204 ‘Weary Wonderer’ Without knowing the date I can not give you a value. You can use the age guide on this site to help determine the date your Hummel was produced.
I found a hummel #332 called “Soldier Boy” that my parents had in a desk at their house while we were cleaning it out. I’ve looked in guides online, but it doesnt appear to exist. I have no intentions of selling it, but i would like to know its value since i do have many other collectibles as well. Thank you for your help!
Hummel 332 ‘Soldier Boy’ does exist. I will need to know the age of the Hummel before I can give you a value. You can use the following age guide on this site to help you.
I have both the umbrella Girl 152/B and the umbrella boy 152/A from the 1950-1955 time frame. The Girl one says 1951 on it, the boy does not, but they have the right Goebel marks, and they were purchased in Germany 1953-1957. From your guide it shows each retail price at $1,750.00 Does that value change depending on how old they are? They are both in very good condition. I do not detect any chips or scrapes.
The value does change with the age. Also guides go out of date rather quickly due to market changes and the time it takes to produce a guide. Most guides are about 1-2 years behind the current market. With the current market conditions we are seeing about a 40% drop in prices right now. That would put both Hummel 152/A & B trademark 3 figurines estimated value at $750 per figurine. These values should always be used as a guide.

I bought 4 Hummel figurines at an auction but I don’t know the true value. Can you please help? 1) Figurine (small) of a boy with blonde hair wearing an orange (?) scarf around his neck, blue (?) jacket and white shirt, black (?) shorts and red (?) shoes. He is holding a horn in his right hand and a toy horse under his left arm. It looks to have the year 1967, 239/0 with the number 62 sideways in front of it, and the number 691 or G91 written in black, & Germany, all on the bottom of it. 2) A boy with brown hair that has the bangs coming to a point looking up with a red scarf around his neck, a blue jacket with a white-ish shirt, black shorts with suspenders or bibs, blue socks, & black boots that tie, holding a stick under his right arm and a basket in his left arm. On the bottom is the year 1967 with the number 51 3/2 and an N off to the left under it (W. Germany). 3) A boy with dishwater blonde hair seated on a green stoop with a brown fence behind him with a bird sitting on his left on the fence post and an orange (?)flower on each side of the bottom of the fence. He is wearing a brown hat with a feather on it,red scarf around his neck, white shirt, blue and brown plaid jacket, brown pants, white (?) socks and black backless shoes. On the bottom is the year 1955 and the number 174 (W. Germany). 4) A girl with dishwater blonde hair in braided pigtails and red bows with 2 parts of her bangs swooshing off to her right. She is wearing a dress with short white (kind of poofy) sleeves, black top to the dress and red skirt to the dress, blue (?) socks (uneven), and red shoes that tie. Her left hand is on her chest and she has a basket in her right arm. On the bottom is the the number 96 and off to the right (under) upside down is the number 15 (W. Germany).
I hope this is enough information. Please let me know if you need more.

My mom has two Hummel plates she wants to sell. Pleasant Journey and Spring Dance. Really nice plates. She got them from my grandmother. Can someone tell me what they are worth and how I can sell them for her?
The avg value of Hummel plates are $35.00(USD). You can sell them on eBay or a site called Ruby Lane.
I just inherited a collection of 40 hummels from the early 80s, 3 collectors plates and four rubber dolls. how do i begin to find a place to sell them? I already took the two I wanted, including the “bookworm”. Thanks.
With this many Hummels I would suggest using a local auction house. If you where to eBay them it would be a lot of hassle with shipping and packing. If you need help finding an auction house in your area please let me know.
What is the difference between M.I. Hummel and M.J. Hummel figurines? I have a TMK 3LS Heavenly Angel and a TMK 3SS Merry Wanderer with a stamped 64 on the bottom and both of them are stamped with M.J. Hummel. After researching these for weeks I am more confused now then when I started. I checked out a book that is called “HUMMEL” AN ILLUSTRATED HANDBOOK AND PRICE GUIDE by KEN ARMKE but I think it only goes up to 1995. How can I find the value of these? PLEASE HELP! Thank You!!!
There is no difference it is just the I looks like a J in the signature.
Hummel 21 Heavenly Angel TMK 3 Approximate value is $200 (USD)
Hummel Merry Wanderer I will need a little more information on it. There should be a number 7 or 11 on it can you tell me which on. If not then can you describe the Hummel to me as it might be a different Hummel.
Thanks for responding. The Merry Wanderer has a 11 2/0 with a 64 ingraved under and to the side of the above numbers. I am trying to sell these for an 83 year old lady friend of mine who is like a grandmother to me and want to make sure she gets what they are worth. I listed the Merry Wanderer on ebay with a reserve of $125.00 it seems I am spending my money to try and sell them. Do you have any suggestion on how I can sell them or who may be interested in them. Thank You again, Joe
Hummel number 11 2/0 ‘Merry Wanderer’ TMK 3 fair market value is about $100.00 – 150.00 (USD). I personally do not like to sell items on eBay. When selling on eBay you can expect to sell your items for 1/4-1/2 of the estimated value. You can try a site called Ruby Lane. I personally have not sold any items there but I do browse the site for items to buy. If you need further help please let me know.
I have inherited a complete collection of Hummel plates (1971-1995) and was wondering the value. There are no boxes, but all plates are in good condition with only 3 or 4 having small (less than 1cm) chips, mostly on the edges. Thanks.
The avg value per plate is $25-35 (USD) the ones with chips will be 25% lower in value.
i have a painting of a little girl sittng in a wickechair. she has her hand over her mouth and one of her redshoes are untied. there is around table beside her with a plate of cookies and milk on the table. her dress is blue. it is signed by doug iversen and i was wondering if it has any value thank you donna anderson
Is this a Hummel painting?
Hi, My grandmother left my sister and I her collection of Hummels. I saw your chart of how to tell the age, and I also found a chart that tells the suggested retail and value, but how do you find the Hummel’s name, in order to look up the value? I guess I’m looking for a book or a site with pictures and corresponding names.
There is a number on the bottom of the Hummel figurine. Goebel uses this number to id the Hummel. You can get my Complete Hummel Value Guide which is listed by number and includes the names and values for all the Hummel figurines and other Hummel products.
I have a hummel from, i think, the early 60’s. West Germany, from when my aunt lived there. It’s a little boy? with an instrument–like a guitar-type thing. He’s wearing a blue outfit with red polka dots. Do you have any information on this?
I believe this is Hummel Number 53 ‘Joyful’ TMK 4 if it is from the 1960’s. Estimated value is $45.00.
I have three hummels, they are angels each 2 1/2inches high. They each have a small birthday candle sized holder next to them. One is blowing a horn.she has a blue v with a bee inside, its wings are lower then the top of v. stamped on the bottom with Germany in black underneath the v and bee. 1/40 is etched into her legs with a 0 under it. The next one is playing what looks like a mandallin or some string instrument. she has the same markings. but without the etching. The third playing an accordian with the blue v and bee inside it The bees wings are level to the top of v and next to the v is W Germany in blue. She is etched with 1/39/0 on her underside of legs.Can you tell me anything about these angels? How much they are worth. Thanks so much

I hope you can help me! I have a M.I.Hummel Merry Wanderer Plaque, I am confused by the markings on the back! There’s a 92 at the top, in the middle there is a raised ceramic diamond shape and the most confusing part is the ingraved signature a scripted M. I. Hummel, a copywrite circled c, a line_____________, with 1938 and it was stamped with the V and the bee with another copywrite circled c, W.Goebel and West Germany, all tiered and an open circle cut out at the bottom. The problem I have is I was told the scripted signature, the 92 & 1938 from the 1935-1949 time period (it does not have the W overlaying the G), but the V with the bee is 1964-1972 time period. I have tried to research this but can’t find any others to compare mine to. One email I got back said That it is considered a rare signature stamped Hummel but did not know the worth? Help Please!
Thank you, Allegra Kelley
Hi Korin, Just wondering if you ever were able to identify and price the “Merry Wanderer” plaque by the pictures I emailed you?
I’ve found most of the names & values of the Hummels that my mother left my sisters and me. However, I’m stumped on a small set of 2 wall plaques, 2.5″ x 3.25″ each, twin kneeling angels (cherubs?) w/blond hair and blue robes, that face each other. Markings are both the Crown and the Full Bee. They have “10500/56” amd “2.00” written in pencil on the back of each. They also have a thin twisted, fine green cord looped thru 2 holes in the top back edge of “frame” that goes thru to the back; the back even has depressions where the cords come thru the “frame” and are tied on the back. I’m betting that they might be worth more than $2.00 each, but won’t know unless I get some help in identifying them. Your assistance is MOST appreciated!
I have a figurine that says “exclusive special edition No. 5 for Members of the Goebel Collectors Club”. It is dated 1972 under the Goebel mark and is number 380. It is also initialed by the artist. Unfortunatey, I do not know her name. Can you tell me her name and value? Her trademark has the ‘c’ in a circle with it, but she is engraved 1972 so I am not sure of her age. I also have an angel ornament. She is holding a string instrument and she is a bell. It says 1977 on her side. Can you also tell me her name and value. Her trademark is the 1972-1979 one. Thank you so much
I have three Hummels from my grandmother (maiden name Finsterbach–German enough?:). One is labeled “Chick Girl”, with number 57/0 & a V with a little bee and “W. germany” on base. One is a girl feeding geese, marked 197 2/0, 74, and (I think) 1248; TM is bigger “cartoon” bee in a V, also copyright by W. Goebel.the third is an angel bot in green holding a windblown candle, marked 21/0, same smaller stylized “bee in V’ as the first, labeled “Heavenly Angel”. One of his wings is broken. I think she got them in the 50s/60s, but I’m not sure. I’d just like a few more facts, dates, values to know what I’ve got. Thank you!
I was given the a Hummel Goebel “Little Bavaria Cathedral in Massing”. It is in excellent condition, in the original box and also has the Certificate of Authenticity. Made in Ireland in 1988. Can you tell me the value? Thank you!
Can I have the number on the bottom of the figurine please?
The fist is Hummel 380 ‘Daisies Don’t Tell’ TMK5 and has an estimated fair market value of $350. The bell is a bit harder to pin down without knowing the markings or having a picture. If you could email me a picture of it to: [email protected] (side and bottom/trademark please) I will see what I can find out about it.
My husband has a Hummel that has a mark on the bottom that would date it from the chart between 1950-1955. It has the bee between the V on the bottom, but it has a capital R right beside it. The word Germany is on the bottom. The number looks like 89/1, but if I making out right, there is a small number going vertically beside the 89 and I think its 37. The figurine is a boy with brown hair sticking from under a black hat with a burgandy color spot on the right side with a black band around it. He has on a carrot colored jacket or coat with what looks like a red scarf around his neck. He is wearing blue pants and brown shoes. He is carrying a large instrument on his back that looks like a large fiddle. He is holding the strap of the fiddle with his left hand. He has a stick in his right had that is long like a walking stick. He appears to be walking. The Hummel signature is on the top base. He has something green sticking out of his right pocket that looks like it has a small brown top or cap on it. Can you tell me how much he is worth? Thank you.
If you could please send me a couple of pictures of the side and bottom (as clear and detailed as you can manage)of the figurine to [email protected] it would greatly help me in trying to find its name and value.
You really provide an invaluable service here, thank you so much for your time!
I have a 1962-1970 Apple Tree Girl, and she has a small number 3 marked on her base, I’m not sure what this means, could you give me an idea of her value?
Very much appreciated!
sorry, i meant 1960-72!
Additionally, she is the 3.5 inch edition.
Thank you again!
Are you sure that its the 3.5″ version? if so that would mean it was made in 2004 or later. If you could please send me a couple of pictures of the side and bottom (as clear and detailed as you can manage)of the figurine to [email protected] it would greatly help me in trying to find its age and value.
I have a figurine of a girl holding a sun or a mask on a rod. The bottom says Goebel. There is a # 11366 1B 59 on the bottom with the year 1984. On the back there is a name that looks like Lora. The girl has brown hair with a green bow in it.Can you give me any info on this?
What do I need to do to get answers to my questions? Do I have to pay to join something?
I have several Hummel figurines and am wondering if any of these could possibly be genuine? Here is what they are stamped with:
94 3/0 West Germany & includes a blue V stamp
43 West Germany & also includes a blue V stamp
112 3/0 By W.Goebel Blue V stamp that says W.Germany
These are only a few, however if they were authentic I would like to sell them, could you give advice on where to begin?
Thank you- George
If you could please send me a couple of pictures of the side and bottom (as clear and detailed as you can manage)of the figurines to [email protected] it would greatly help me in trying to find out if they are indeed authentic Hummels.
I have a hummel named The Builder #305 dated 1955 and would like to know what it is worth.
Hummel 305 ‘The Builder’ TMK3 has an aprox fair market value of $300 – $450
I have 7″ Flight into Egypt – Mary on a donkey’s back and Joseph – a separate figure. The mark is circle trademark – small upper right side with Goebel “v” with small bee. I have not been able to find it on any sites or any listings. What can you tell me?
I didn’t give you the numbers for the flight into Egypt – there is a 1959 – a ROB405/A and a small 36 . All are imprinted in the glazed bottom – no ink.
I have a hummel that has a scene of a boy playing a pipe to 2 sheep and a girl sitting next to them. on top there is a pole with the crucifix. on the underneath there is a large v with a bee. it says 228/2 then there is a space and in smaller numbers 76 how do i fiqure out the price or even the name of this hummel?
i mean 28/2 not 228/2
The name is Hummel 28 ‘Wayside Devotion’. If you go to the bottom left of this page you will find a link to “Find Out the Age of your Hummel Figurine”. On that page is a list of the different TMK. If you reply to this message with what year TMK you have I then can give you a fair market value for your figurine.
I have been collecting Angels for many years. Each time I took a trip, an Angel was my souvinere. Most are Hummels. I’ve gotten books and price lists and have only found a couple of names but none match what I have. Is there someplace that I can find the names of my angels and today’s price for them?
After reading some of the above comments I have more questions. I also looked at the age of Hummels and I seem to have something different so I’m going to give you what I have so far.

Any help you can give me would be appreciated. You can see that dates do not fit the guide and most are not found in books or guides.
I was reading some of the comments above and read one by Cheryl. She said she had a Gra 259 . I also have Gra 259 89 4 !/2″ red dress candle holder marked 1963 which I bought in Germany some years ago. You said it may be a Goebel. Do you only know about Hummels? and how do we find out about Goebels?
I have a Hummel 96 ‘Little Shopper’ with a 51 incised over the 96. i only found two such examples .
of this ocurring from an old book where I got and use the term doubled over stamp. When i do an internet search nothing comes up. Why is it so hard to find anything on the web about doubled over stamps? What is one worth now adays?
I have not heard the term double over stamp. Factory flaws are know to occur especially with the double trademark stamp. This is when two trademarks are present on the Hummel. These double markings do not effect the value very much.
Without knowing the trademark of the Hummel I can not estimate the value. If you can tell me what trademark your figurine has I can give you and estimated value.
My # 96 ‘Little Shopper’ has one TMK3 small stylized bee trademark.
I’m not sure if you have access to a hummel book;
“Hummel Art II”
by John F. Hotchkiss
First Edition, 1981
Published by Wallace Homestead(authoritative books on antiques & collectibles)
There is mention of Hummel 94 (Surprise aka Hansel & Gretl)”there is a figurine with the 94. (decimal) incised over a previously insiced # 82 in one case”…..
“except for major deviations like the doubled over stamp which might be valued in the high hundreds.” is a direct quote
From my research #96 and #95 do not have there own drawings, they are rather taken from the drawing of Hansel & Gretl together. In my figurines case she is #96 clearly but over the #96 is another incised #51 again very clear. What is more interesting is #51 is Hansel with a basket, where in #95 he doesn’t have one…..
is is so much fun ^^
The best way to find a buyer for this would be to use an auction house that specializes in Hummel or figurine sales. As for the double stamping I do not think this will effect the value of your figurine much.
i have a goose girl figurine in good conditon and a monk salt and pepper (brown) and a monk toby jug (also brown) all in good condition. anyone know the value of any of them ? also does anyone know any sites selling hummel cheaply in the uk.
Does the jug and salt & pepper shakers have a number on the bottom of them?
Hummel 47 ‘Goose Girl’ comes in many variations. Can you tell me what the variations yours? is. It should be one of the following.
I also need to know what TMK your Hummel is. There is a TMK mark on the bottom of the figurine you can use the date guide on this site to help you with this.
Hi, i’m not having as much fun lately. It is hard to find someone to talk too about #96 “little shopper” like I mentioned in my last post. And is discouraging thinking that I could find someone who appreciates it, let alone a buyer, but still come up empty handed. Well I will wait to here from you^^
I have the Hummel “Little Sweeper” figurine (about 3.5″ tall)that a former neighbor gave to me in 1968. She had purchased it in Germany when she was stationed there. It has the “V” with the “bee” trademark with the W. Germany underneath and the Hummel signature on the back of the base. I am trying to find out the value of my figurine but it seems that most of the information I can find on the different web sites are for newer versions of the figurine.
I believer this is Hummel 171 ‘Little Sweeper’ TMK 4. Estimated value is $144 (USD).
I have a 5 1/2″ Little Thrifty, 118, V W. Germany. Can you tell me the value?
With out knowing the Trademark of Hummel number 118 ‘Little Thrifty Bank’ it is hard to give an estimated value. Please let me know what trademark your Hummel is.
I inherited 2 Hummels from my mother with the bee inside the V mark on the bottom. I don’t know the names of these figurines, but do have the numbers from the bottom. The first looks like #79 and is approx 6 inches tall. It’s a boy with brown hat, hands in pockets, umbrella under his left arm, foot kicked straight out in front, with a cone-shaped basket on his back. Looks like he could be singing or whistling.
The second figurine looks like #89/1 and is also approx 6 inches tall. It’s a boy with black derby hat, brown coat with kerchief around his neck, walking stick in right hand, and bass fiddle on his back. He is walking.
M.I. Hummel is printed on the bottom of each figurine. I’d love to know anything you can tell me about these.
Thanks so much,
Hummel 79 is ‘Globe Trotter’. I am not sure which TMK you have if its the Full bee this is the bigger bee or the stylized bee this is the smaller bee. The full bee’s estimated value is $300.00 (USD) the stylized bee is $210.00 (USD)
Hummel 89/I is ‘Little Cellist’ again I don’t know which V/bee TMK you have
estimated full bee value is $330.00 (USD) stylized bee is $240 (USD).
Remember these are only estimates and the values may vary as the market changes. I always try to adjust with the market but it is a ever changing market.
I have a a figurine of St. Francis of Assisi with birds on his shoulders. The number on the bottom is 38 and the figurine is 10 inches tall. The symbol on the bottom says Germany, not W. Germany. It was found in my grandparents house when they passed away in the 1980’s. Any idea about the age or value?
Does this have the Goebel trademarking on it? Goebel used the same trademarking on all its products until 1990.
If so I believe this is a Goebel figurine. There is limited information on the other figurines Goebel made. I am currently working on a price guide for these but it will be sometime before it is done due to the lack of information.
I have a 1985 Miniature Collector’s Plate “Serenade” by Hummel, and the box. The writing on the sides of the box are in German and the copyright reads Goebel 1984.
On the back of the plate it reads Hum 741 The M.I.Hummel “Little Music Makers” 1984-1987, then the copyright and W. Germany 1983. Around the plate (in a circle) it reads: Second Edition In A Series of Four Not To Be Used For Food Handpainted. There’s also a circle with So. Jahre M.I.Hummel Figurine. In the middle of the circle is 1935
Also, on the box is W. Goebel Porzellanfabrik.
Would you be able to estimate it’s worth? I looked at your guide, but was unable to find anything on the collectors’ Plates.
Thank you so much!
Hummel number 741 ‘Serenade’ (1985) plate, estimated value is $30.00 (USD)
i have the figurine pictured at the top of your website – the little boy with the travel bag and umbrella. it has w. germany under the V and 11/0 impressed into the porcelain. what is the name of this figurine and approximate value? thanks.
This is Hummel 11/0 ‘Merry Wanderer’. The TMK sounds like its a TMK4. The estimated value is $225.00 (USD). This figurine is hard to find in the TMK 4 you can verify that it is a TMK 4 by using the following Hummel date guide.
thank you for your response. it looks like the age stamp encompasses 1960-1972, which could be tmk3 or tmk4. how do i know which it is?
I have 13 Hummels. Where is the nearest auction house to Gainesville, Fla.
Hi Charles, You can use auctionzip.com to locate an auction by zip code. This is one of the best ways to find one in your area.
What is the best way to sell your Hummels? Is it best to have a private sale,contact an antique dealer or what?I have never used EBay.
Judi, The best way I would say is Auction house. But this also depends on your situation. Privet sale for Hummels is not a good way since most Hummels are in high supply. Ebay is a fast way to sell but you wont get the fair market value for your Hummel. http://www.rubylane.com is also a good place. I have not personal used them but I have heard good things about them.
I have a Hummel picture 3×5 from my ex mother in law. Its in a frame stamped with Made in Germany on back bottom right hand corner. It shows a little girl sitting in the grass with legs straight out holding a blue flower in left hand. Theres also a black bird singing and a yellow butterfly in the picture. Unable to find any other markings other than Hummel in bottom right hand corner on front of picture. Haven’t taken the back off yet as its nailed on. Please help.
Is this a wall plaque or a print?
I believe this is a print.
Hi, I have a #20 Hummel “prayer before battle” from my husband’s great aunt. It has the trademark from 1935-1949 twice—one is imprinted and the other is a green stamped one. Also on the bottom of the base (in the outer ring?) is another marking that looks like an “M” with the first upstroke longer than the last downstroke. And the downstroke almost ends with a “v” shape. Do you have an idea of the value of this Hummel? It is in excellent condition (no chips or anything)
Thank you so much for this informative forum!
The estimated value Hummel 20 “Prayer Before Battle” is $300.00 (USD)
I have just inherited some Hummels which are not listed on your list. The date stamps suggest 1965-1972. They are titled “Strolling Along,” “Globe Trotter,” “Happy Traveler,” and “Sister.” Any ideas about them? Thanks!
There should be a number of the bottom of each Hummel can you please tell me them.
As near as I can tell, “Strollign Along” has a 5; “Globe Trotter” a 79 (hard to see), “Happy Traveler” a 108/?, “Sister” 86 (or 98 if I turn it around), and “To Market a 493/0.
See my comments above – any thoughts?

I have an elderly friend whose husband used to collect hummel’s. guessing she has 50 or more of these figurines. she would like to sell them. what’s the best way for her to do this without getting ripped off?
I would suggest using an auction house that have specialized Hummel auctions. You can find one by searching in Google.
I have a boy sitting with a bird on his accordian. He is attached to a ashtry. I can not find any info on this.The #is 114 and a small #46 by the v. I received it in 1972. Could you tell me anything about this figurine?
This is Hummel 114 “Let’s Sing Ashtray” Trademark 5. Estimated value is $100.00 (USD)
I have a Hummel and would like to know more about it. It is a little girl and boy sitting on a fence the boy is blowing a horn and it looks like she is singing. Below the boy is two lambs sitting together. On the bottom #99, I checked your date chart and I think it’s from 1950-1955 tmk2.
This is Hummel 99 “Eventide” TMK 2. It was first produced in 1938. The estimated value is $300.00 (USD).
Hi! I recently inherited a Hummel Merry Wanderer, and I am curious as to its value. It is a Trademark 1, it is also stamped 2/2 with one of the two’s upside-down. It measures about 10 and 1/4 inches high. It looks to me to be in great condition with one noticeable exception–the tip of the umbrella is chipped off. Any info you could provide me about its value and the best place to try to sell it (ebay?) would be most appreciated. Thanks!
A TMK 1 ‘Merry Wanderer’ is considered rare. The estimated value is $1250 (USD) with no damage. With it having a broken tip on the umbrella this would bring the value down to $650-700 (USD). The best place to sell this would be in an auction for Hummels. You can do a internet and this should provide you with an auction house that specializes in Hummel/figurine auctions.
I recieved a Hummel — Apple Tree Boy, 4″ with the Stylized Bee trademark. It has the words Western Germany spelled out beneath the trademark.
I would like to know the value – but I’m finding it difficult as this Hummel looks different than others I’ve seen that are reported from the same time period. My Apple Tree Boy is looking down and to his right (instead of up) and he has very few cross-hatches on his jacket.
Hummel 142 3/0 ‘Apple Tree Boy’ has many variations and has been restlyized many times over the years. This is a TMK 3 ‘Apple Tree Boy’ and the estimated value is $165.00 (USD).
I have a Hummel “Wayside Harmony” 111 1 1938 TMK4 5″ tall figurine. it has a 14 stamped on the base underside rim. It has some crazing on base side and underside. What is it’s value$.
Hummel 111/1 ‘Wayside Harmony’ TMK4 estimated value is $150-200 (USD.
I have a baby calf hummel, three and a half inches tall, brown and some beige. He is up on his legs with his ears perked up. Do you know anything about this cute calf? He appears to be old. Thank you. Great site!
There should be a number on the bottom of the figurine. Can you please tell me this number?
I have a joyous angel with a lute she has the number 32 on her bottom she has no trade mark she is wearing a blue dress with red pokadots and brown shoes she is seating. I have been told that she is angel number 38 of a set of three. I have researched this and have not been able to come up with an answer to this discrepency. Can you help.
Thank you in advance for you attention in this matter.
Hi Elsa, Joyous (with lute) comes as a candle holder Hummel 38 or as a figurine Hummel 53. If there is a little cup on the side and it is small in size (2-2.5 inches) then it is Hummel 38. Hummel 32 is Little Gabriel (this is a angle playing a trumpet with a green side bag and orange dress). This was called joyous news in some old catalogues. Please let me know which one you have.
I have two figures that I believe to be store displays. One is with a boy carrying a case mounted on the right side of a oval which has “The Original Hummelfigures” and a signature below. A bee is mounted at the top center. Markings on the bottom are #1847 and #187. The second on is the same but in German. and the only mark I see is #205. Any idea as to rough value and history of these pieces?
Hi Robert, There are M.I Hummel Plaques. These where made for dealers to display in there stores. There are many varieties in many different languages. There should be a TMK on the back of these can you please tell what TMK they are? The values change greatly between TMK’s.
Hi! I have a few Hummels that are not on the list. Anyone care to have a go at helping me give a value to these great pieces?
1 – Dashing Through the Snow BH99/P Goebel 2001 China – no box or COA
2 – Me and My Drum BH102/P Goebel 2001 China – With box and COA (no # on the certificate ???)
3 – Holiday Bells BH106/P Goebel 2001 China – With box and COA numbered A0450
Tugging At Your Heartstrings BH229 Goebel 2003 Thailand – With box and COA numbered A383
Thanks! I have pics and I can send the link if needed!
Hi Ryan, The numbers you listed above are not Hummel numbers. Also Hummels where only made in Germany. As for Goebel figurines I do not know much about them but these numbers look to be Goebel figurine or reproduction numbers. I would not be able to tell this unless I saw the figurines. Do these figurines have a TMK on the bottom?
Once again , I say that : Your H I Hummel chart years are wrong . TMK 2 should be 1950 – 1960 , Not 1950 – 1956 . TMK 3 should be 1960 – 1972 , Not 1957 – 1963 . Right ?
Hi Bobby, There are many different resources to find the dates for Hummels and each one varies. I use the one from Goebel which is also the on Robert Miller uses. Which is as follows:
TMK 1: 1935-1949
TMK 2: 1950-1956
TMK 3: 1957-1963
TMK 4: 1964-1971
TMK 5: 1972-1978
TMK 6: 1979-1990
TMK 7: 1991-1999
TMK 8: 2000- Present
I have a “Happiness” Hummel. She’s in perfect condition, however, I’m confused about the markings on the bottom. 86 is stamped into the piece, the word Germany is printed in black lettering. Then there is a blue, hand-painted “V” with what looks like a “Z” inside it. It also has a hand-painted number 2. I can’t find any information on these markings. Are you familiar with them.
The Number 86 is the Hummel number this is used to identify the Hummel.
The V with a bee in it is the TMK (trademark stamp) This is used to date the Hummel. You can find out more about TMK’s at this post https://www.antique-hq.com/find-out-the-value-of-your-hummel-figurine-322
The hand painted 2 is for quality control and has no effect on the value of the figurine.
I have a trademark #4 hummel that is a blue angel musical figurine that plays happy birthday. The number marking on the bottom is HX328. I also have a similar musical figurine that is numbered HX336, It is a santa looking figure in red long coat with fur trim holding a bag and what looks like golden sticks or straw. Any idea what the value of these items are?
This is a Goebel figurine not a Hummel. Goebel used the same TMK’s until 1990. I do not know much about Goebel’s other figurines (this is because there is not much information available). The avg value seems to be $100-200 (USD).
I purchased a Hummel figurine in Germany in 1964 — Doll Mother. Interestingly, it is not stamped with the Hummel insignia, but rather has a pasted stamp on the bottom showing the V and bee. Any ideas about the reason for this and does it add value to the figurine? One person who heard about it wanted to ‘trade’ two of his figurines for my Doll Mother.
Hi Patricia, I am not sure that effect this has on the value of the figurine. I would take it to a Hummel specialist before moving forward with any trades or sales.
I have a merry wanderer figuring that is 10.25″ tall and has the 7/2 stamped on the bottom.It has the crown mark incised on the base, as well as the full bee mark, which is stamped.It is in perfectly flawless condition.
Could you tell me what it’s worth? I can’t find any information on it.
Hi Randy, Hummel 7/II TMK 2 estimated value is 1000-1250 (USD).
Is the tmk 3 in this size hummel more valuable than the 2?
The TMK 2 is more valuable then the TMK3. Hope this helps
Dear Korin, I have inherited a large collection of hummel figurines, plates, bells, etc. from my mother’s estate. She collected these during the 70’s through the 90’s. What is your advice about the best way for me to sell this collection? Time is not a factor for me but I would like to obtain the best price. Thank you for your suggestion.
I would recommend reading my article here: https://www.antique-hq.com/where-to-sell-your-antiques-and-collectibles-1226
Best of luck!
We have two figurines that we wanted to value.
The first one is a 1957 Birthday Serenade (the old style with the boy playing the flute). It is stamped as 1957 on the bottom.
The second one is the Globe Trotter, with a stamp of final issue 1991.
Thanks so much!
The value of the Birthday Serenade Hummel depends on its number.
Birthday Serenade 218 2/0 (4.25″ to 4.5″) is worth $240
Birthday Serenade 218/0 (5.25″) is worth $390
Globe Trotter 79 (5″ – 5.5″) is worth $135
Hope this helps.
Hi, I have a Goebel figurine of two girls dancing in identical dresses and bonnets (one blue, one purple) dancing. They are holding left hands and facing in opposite directions. I understand it’s not a Hummel because it doesn’t have the Hummel signature. However, the bottom is stamped Copn W Goebel and full bee and incised with GB 1. I know you’re not a Goebel specialist but I wonder if you know anything about it. I’m trying to get a value for it. I’m pretty sure Goebel made a series of non-Hummels and this being incised GB 1 makes me think (hope!) that it has a decent value. Any ideas?
Yes, my name is Hummel – and I have two unusual Hummels – first is a 3 1/2 inch high by 6 inch wide sign saying Original “Hummel” Figures, with a bee inside the “V” in a circle at the top . The bottom shows the same bee within the “V” and the copyright symbol by W. Goebel W. Germany. There are two stamped impressions, one saying 1947 and the other saying 187.
The second one is a 6-inch high bust of Sister Maria with a signature M. I. Hummel at the bottom edge of the bust, and on the bottom it says “exclusive special edition No. 3 for members of the Goebel Collectors Club. It has a trademark and date stamp of 1978.
I would be interested in knowing the values, please.
Thanks so much!
A Hummel that collects Hummels? I must admit I laughed when I read that!
Your “Moon” style 187 M.I. Hummel dealers plaque is worth approx $672.00 USD
Your Goebel No. 3 Sister Maria bust is worth approx $100.00 USD
Korin, I have a number of Hummels left by my mother, but 2 are especially intriguing, as they have initials and year marked in pen on the bottom. One is 239/C; the other is 213 2/0. Neither has the v with the bee but both have the Goebel trademark. Also, I’ve been trying to find name and value for a little girl knitting and singing, with a bird singing on her lap, number 69, as well as a little girl playing a banjo/mandolin and singing, number 53. Thanks for you help. Linda
Hello Linda, thanks for visiting the our site. I have found three of the four Hummels you were curious about.
239/C is known as Boy With Horse, and is part of a set of three known as the “Children Trio”
213 2/0 is not a Hummel figure, perhaps its number was misread? If you would kindly double check it it would greatly help us figure out its name.
69 is known as Happy Pastime
53 is known as Joyful
In order to find out the value of each of these we need a detailed description of the trademarks on each, as that is how their age is determined. Thank you for getting a hold of us, I hope this helps.
I bought a US Mil Millenium ed piece in Y2k when I was stationed in Germany. It is Lim ed od 999 and was only offered to the mil overseas. ALL the pieces are signed by the artist and painter who were visiting our base ( a thank you for serving). How can I value this item? It’s similar to the Original millenium piece with the exception that it has a plaque of the world and that too is signed.
Hi, I have a hummel marked “be patient” It is six inches tall and the girl holds a bowl surrounded by two ducks. The marking has c in a circle by WGoebel stamped in is 1948. What is it’s worth? Thanks, Joan Miller
Hello Joan, thank you for taking the time to visit our site.
To better help you I need to know the numbers on the bottom, there are 4 different versions of this Hummel. If you cannot find the numbers knowing it’s height can help us determine the variation you have and then we can determine the value from there. Also, having a detailed description of the trademark will tell us when its made as that is the true indicator of its age. Thanks for your time.
Dear Korin, The height of “Be Patient” is 6 1/2 inches from the base.
The trademark has a c in a circle followed by W, Goebel 1948 – date embossed- the rest in blue – underneath in black is Western Germany. In an embossed circle there is that v with another smaller v- with an embossed 75 over it. There is also at the top of the bottom of the base 197/ and I can’t read the rest. Thank you for your help- Joan Miller
