Hummel produced the 4-inch "Chimney Sweep" in the 1950s with the TMK2 mark. It was not produced in this size during the TMK1 period, making the Stamped Full Bee on this piece the earliest mark for the 4" size. The Full Stamped Bee is among the earliest in the TMK2 era, which covers 1940 to 1959. The "M.I. Hummel" signature and the model number HUM 12/2/0 are incised on the base. This charming little figurine is quite perfect with even the delicate ladder intact.
