Hummel dating marks
Link: is a collectors site and is absolutely chock full of information on identifying and dating German, Bavarian, Bohemian etc porcelain. Mister Smifff=====================================Peter (admin) says:- I couldn't agree with you more.
The only annoying thing about that site is they list makers regionally which makes it mighty hard to find a random mystery mark....

I also show above, a photo of two W & A pottery marks (ed.
Is there any information out there that shows a list of the figurines or atleast provides a clue on their numbering system, how many different ones were made? - Norine Hi Norine Up until recently you could have asked them, as the Arnart import company was still in business in the US.

I very much appreciate work of this type by our visitors.

Yours Faithfully Diana Ryan."Having just had a query about the same subject - a Hummel look-alike figurine with a crown label (see top photo) - I automatically attributed Diana's mark (without seeing a photo of the mark) to the Arnart Hummel rip-offs (designed by German artist Erich Stauffer).
Arnart were big importers of cheap Japanese goods in the 1950's and 60's - also with a crown label.
Unfortunately, one of my rescue pets destroyed them. Because of this, it started me looking into ARNART and Erich Stauffer.
I found that the numbering on my large figurines all had the same number to them, whereas smaller figurines were numbered separately.
