Which came first in Hummel’s — Grandma or Mom?

Umbrella Girl / Unbrella Boy After a Rain Storm

This pair of Hummel Figurines was purchased by my parents on one of their trips to Europe.

Umbrella Boy” Goebel Hummel Figurine #152/0 A TMK1 Incised Crown – Little Boy Under Big Umbrella After A Rain Storm! – Value @ $250.00

“Umbrella Girl” Goebel Hummel Figurine 152 It features a young girl under his umbrella waiting for the rain to pass.- Value @ $ 250.00

Both items are signed and labeled W. Germany. So, like Grandma’s they date back to prior to reunification.

Mom had a large collection of these figurines. Unfortunately, I found a shopping bag in my parents’ attic full of broken ones. There seemed to have been a major mishap. These two are the largest ones to have survived. In addition to the one (prior post) that belonged to my Grandmother, there are three others that survived:

Boy with a bugle (mouth piece has been broken)
School Girl with a slate
School boy with back pack’

The last one is the only one with the label of simply Germany (after reunification). All three of these have been signed.
