Q: The enclosed picture is of one of the early Hummels. It is No. 131, called "Advent Group." I believe it was made between 1923 and 1935. It has the original Goebel Crown Mark. The figure on the right has a very tiny chip on the underside of the pinky finger. My question is, what is the current price?
A: This is the Hummel candleholder No. 113, "Heavenly Song." (The "Advent Group" has one black child). The Goebel Crown Mark was used on Hummels from 1935 to 1942. This would sell for about $5,000 in good condition. It is impossible for me to assess the diminished value because of damage.
Q: This mark is on the bottom of a 14-inch porcelain punch bowl. It has four small feet and is decorated all over with grape clusters and leafy grape vines. Please tell me what you can about its history and origin. I would also like to know what the value is.
