OK, I was raised to appreciate genuine Hummels. To me, they don't fall into the same category as most commercial pottery.

Maybe because I grew up with some pricey signed originals my grandparents picked up in Europe---not sure, but that must be why.

It's a style, at least, and far, FAR above Precious Moments and "made in Taiwan" animals..."

It's true, Gary. I broke one, at a very wealthy families home, when I was a kid. It wasn't pretty. The lady of the house, had an entire collection, sitting on the mantel of the fire place!.....minus one!

I think Hummels were very popular in the 1970's---that's when I most remember seeing them in people's homes, and the fancy jewelry store on Main St in downtown Malone, NY carried them, and they were locked in a bog locked glass case.

I think they have fallen out of fashion since then. And they are certainly a "taste!"

It was in the early 1960's, probably '61 or '62, when I broke the Hummel, and I know this lady had had them for a long time. She was heartbroken, but understood that I didn't mean to break it. I've never forgotten it, though. I felt so bad. I was probably about 10 or 11.
