Fanfare Century Collection
This is Fanfare Century Collection and it was first released in the U.S. market in the fall of 1998.
This is the 14th and final figurine in the Century Collection and was produced for only this one
year(1999) in the twentieth century. It was modeled by master sculptors Helmut Fischer and Marion
Huschka in 1993. It has an incised 1993 copyright date. A circular inscription applied by blue
decal reads: "M.I. Hummel 1999 XX Final Edition-Century Collection" and the name "Fanfare" along with
the TM7 trademark. It came with a hardwood base with brass plaque: "Century Collection 1999/Letzte
Ausgabe - Final Edition". The official issue price was $1275 in 1999. The incised "M.I. Hummel"
signature is perpendicular on the back of the hummel.
It stands a good 11 inches, a closed edition and is a trademark TM7. This one is signed by
two master artist. Isabella Then and Silke Renner. We were able to go to the Goebel factory
itself in Roedenthal, Germany.
