Your HM 70 was actually cast in the 30's and finished in the
50's....value is between $ 250.00 - 1,000.00 depending on size and
condition.....it is NOT a Hummel figurine but a HX series Goebel
figurine.....same manufacturer (makes Hummel figurines and over 60
other figurine lines) but different product line.....
Best regards,
Hans

Expertise

In regards to American antique, vintage and collectible furniture I can help with wood identification, styles, age, periods, historical coatings, materials, techniques, repair, restoration, refinishing, and value. I do not study mid century and later furniture nor do I deal in lamps, and other smalls. robertsantiques@cox.net You may ask for values and I will give you current market values, I will not give you 'feel good' values. Understand that there are many factors that contribute to market value. If you want a feel good, unrealistic number, please call a local inexperienced appraiser. It is my desire to help you and in doing so I increase my knowledge as well. For that I thank you.

Experience

I have been in the antiques furniture and restoration business and in the sales of antique furniture for 40+ years and have continued my education in the trade attending workshops and seminars by various organizations, institutions, and private collectors.
