Hummel 88/II Heavenly Protection Angel with Girl and Boy TMK3

The Hummel figurine "Heavenly Protection" was originally crafted by master sculptor Reinhold Unger and introduced in the late 1930s. An angel is depicted sheltering two children under her cloak, between outstretched arms. Note that the girl and boy are the same as the stand-alone figurine "HUM 94: Surprise" which has also been called "The Duet", "Hansel and Gretl" and "What's Up?" in company literature. (Von Recklinghausen, "The Official M.I. Hummel Price Guide", © 2010) See the original paper label on the back base.

This piece is incised "88/II" and "22", and is stamped with the "Small Stylized Bee" TMK3 mark in a donut base which was used from 1960 to about 1972. This version stands about 9" and is priced in the guide book at $660-$720, which is considerably higher than the 6-1/4" – 6-3/4" versions. One can see very minimal crazing inside the cloak folds with a magnifier, and a bit just to the left of the paper label on the base back. This is a highly sought-after piece, and it is in excellent condition with no chips or repairs.
