  • Q:

    How can I tell if a Hummel is authentic?

    A:

    Authentic Hummel porcelain figurines, plates, miniatures, lamps, bells, plaques and other distinctive collectibles bear a definitive identification mark. All Hummels are inscribed with the name M.I. Hummel, unless the piece is too small to accommodate that insignia. Since 1935, the distinctive copyright symbol featuring a bee flying above the letters "GW" has been modified and currently shows the bee flying over the words "Goebel Germany."
