Two well-loved Hummel figures, "Playmates" and "Chick Girl", were chosen for this set of bookends stamped with the TMK3 Stylized Bee mark on the wood base, dating them to between 1960 and 1972. The Hummel bookend figures characteristically do not have the usual base because they are attached to the wooden bookend base. An incised model number may appear on the base of the figure, but viewing it would require removing the figure from the base. (Von Recklinghausen, "The Official M.I. Hummel Price Guide", © 2010)
The bookends stand 6" tall with figures measuring about 4". The base has an affixed thin foam padding to prevent slippage while in use. The bookends are in intact and lovely, with a wee bit of paint loss on the "Playmates" stamped mark, as visible in the photographs. The figures are in excellent, bright condition.
