Around 1950, Germany

Pair of rare vintage Hummel porcelain bookends shaped like 2 terriers with fantastic details.
Signed at the bottom and both are equipped with a factory sticker ‘noch ein Fabrikat’ and the Wilhelmsfeld logo. " The letters WG below the crown in the signature are the initials of William Goebel, one of the founders of the company, together with his stamped Full Bee trademark. Note the use of the decimal placeholder with the carved mould number.

In 1950, the company Goebel made a major change to their trademark. They incorporated a bee in a V. It was thought that the ‘Hommel’ part of the hallmark was derived from a childhood nickname of sister Maria Innocentia Hummel, which means ‘bumblebee’. The bee flies in a V, which is the first letter of the German word for distribution company. Verkaufsgesellschaft. The goal was to honour ML Hummel, who died in 1946.
In good condition with minor signs of wear (restored ear - hairline crack).
Size:
Height 16 cm & 18 cm - weight 1134 grams.
Base 9 x 9 cm.
The photos are an integral part of the description of the lot.
