I’m very glad that you chose Mearto for your online appraisal,
Considering the photographs, overall pattern, porcelain quality and the colours, I concluded that this is an Entirely Hand Painted Goebel and Hummel Figurine depicting a Boy Behind the Camera. The piece dates back to the period form 1979-1990. The mark underneath the piece was used between the suggested periods. The piece is commonly named as "The Photographer Boy". As usual to Hummel Figurines, we can see a romantised early 20th century scene. A dachshund dog under the camera was also depicted in brown colour. The boy wears a red scarf and has a surprised apperance to imitate the impressiveness of the cameras at the time. The piece has a "M. J. Hummel" sign at the base. The piece has serial number of "178" and "1948", these does not indicate any age but only representing the model number and the piece's production number. Glazing cracks are visible on the base. The piece is in generally good condition with a crack on the neck of the boy.
Entirely hand painted.
Dimensions: 4 3/4 Inches High by 3 7/8 Inches Wide at the base.
Condition: The piece is in generally good condition with a crack on the neck of the boy.
Provenance: Inherited from the current owner's mother who had a Hummel Figurine Collection.
