Hummel MERRY WANDERER is in pristine condiditon with no crazing, chips, cracks, nicotine tar, fading, etc. It will stand up to a blacklight scan...even umbrella tip is intact. This is a vintage Hummel, trademark 2, see photo of base. The number 5 is incised in the mold. We have a young boy strolling with an umbrella over his shoulder, his faithful rust colored scottie style dog beside him. Condition is exceptional and the eyes are gazing left, an important disctinction for this figurine. Height is about five and one fourth inches. MERRY WANDERER is not in its original packaging. At the time of production for this figurine, foam lined boxes were not available. However, I have packed it has been stored and will be shipped in a box from a current Hummel, The Poet, with foam wedge packing. I was a Hummel dealer for many years and am clearing out part of the contents of a smoke free, climate controlled, storage area. Watch for my other fine collectibles, porcelain and sterling. Shipping for this item is $6.00 for continental US. I will try to keep shipping costs as low as possible and combine for multiple auctions wins paid for with one payment. Paypal is preferred but other methods accepted.
