Early 5-1/2" Hummel figurine #4 titled "Little Fiddler", Full bee TMK 2., ca 1950 with the old doughnut shaped base. The underside of the base has the model number 4 incised, the blue full bee stamp and "Germany" stamped with black ink. The "Hummel" signature is on the side of the base.
In one view shown, the fiddle appears to have some paint loss but it's only a lighting glare. This wonderful old figure is in near mint condition. The underside of the base has a couple of very mild craze lines. The mottled painting on the hat is original. There is one small spot that appears to be a factory paint skip. There are no chips, dings, cracks, repairs or any other flaws. It has wonderful deep rich coloration with the original patina and gloss.
