I have only four Hummel figurines, all of which I highly prize. "Max and Moritz", measuring about 5 1/2" tall, once belonged to my G'ma Hanle. The full bee marking on the bottom indicates the age dating to the 1940's. These little guys came into my possession along with a few other things Mom brought back from that trip to Ohio. They are at home in the china cabinet. During the years of my hairstyling career, I had a client who seriously collected the Hummels. She invited me to her home to see her collection and it was unbelievable. She must have had most every one ever designed. To this day, I can close my eyes and see that room and the shelves filled with these adorable figurines !!
