Hummel Lamps

I've been meaning to ask about this about this for a while.  Does anyone have any Hummel lamps?  

I've talked before about our collection of Hummel figurines.  We also have two cute Hummel lamps.  One boy and a girl:



They were my grandmother's.  Aren't they cute?  I love these.  These lamps are one of the few things in the house that Handy Boy isn't allowed to touch.

I have looked them up online, but I've seen a huge variation in what they are worth in price.  I'd never sell them, but I'm just curious. Do you know anything about these?  Have you ever seen lamps like this?

These little Hummel lamps are just precious! I've never seen any before. Your grandmother would love it that you use them and are showing them to us.
Be a sweetie,
Shelia :)

I have never seen or heard of Hummel before but the lamps remind me of my own grandmother and look like something she might have owned.

These are cute. I sell a ton of stuff on eBay and have been a power seller for a long time and I have never seen Hummel lamps before. The average sale price on eBay is $65 but I don't know how accurate that is.

Oh my -- my mother-in-law would have LOVED those. When she died, we inherited her Hummel collection. I have dozens of them in the house now. but no lamps. THAT would be awesome to have lamps like that!

My great-grandmother had an entire cabinet filled with Hummels. Oh how I loved staring at them and making up little stories for them. I've never seen a lamp before, though!

All I know about these lamps is that they are beautiful.

I've never really observed Hummels up close before, but now I understand what all the excitement is about. They really are lovingly detailed. Thanks for educating me. Nice to see heirlooms being well taken care if.

I have two Hummel lamps also. I was given them when my Uncle passed away. Mine are two boys one on a fence the other in an apple tree. I love them and display on my bookshelf.

My grandmother collected Hummel eggs for me for years, but I've never seen lamps before! These are SO cute! I would love to put something like this into a nursery. Thanks so much for sharing!

Oh, these are wonderful! I didn't know they made lamps. My grandmother also loved Hummel's. Thanks for linking it to Home Sweet Home!

I've had my pair of the same Hummels for around 30 years, but they are the smaller size. I used to belong to a collector's club sponsored by Goebel. Perhaps it is still operating and would have information for you.♥♫
P.S. I do know that the price would be much higher than the $65 mentioned in another comment. They are quite expensive for just the figurines.

I have a hummel lamp of a girl in an apple tree with a puppy underneath the tree holding one of her shoes.

I have a hummel lamp from the '50s given to me by my grandmother and absolutely love it. It's a little girl sitting under the tree with flowers and a baby goat behind her. I had it packed away for years afraid it would get broken but just yesterday put a "new" clip-on shade on it and am going to display it in my living room. I've got a few little hummel figurines and years ago did some really cute hummel cross-stitch pieces.
