“There really isn't another stand-out I can think of that would be close to this price."

The statue includes a youngster with a bow in her hair, holding a sign that states “FREE puppies” and standing next to a wheelbarrow loaded with dogs.

As of late, one figurine was sold for $188, and another for $250. You could possibly fetch a more expensive rate in case you're lucky enough.

Paul Burton, a spokesperson for Woolvey Fine Antiques & Collectibles, said that the “God Loveth a Cheerful Giver” figurine “has had valuations placed on it … in excess of $2,000.”

In an email, Burton told Today: “I don't believe I have seen one actually sell for more than half of that, although they are still occasionally listed for sale in that price range."

“There really isn't another stand-out I can think of that would be close to this price,” he added.

Other Precious Moments collectibles, for example, the 1981 musical figurine, “Silent Knight,” can still fetch over $100.

A “God Loveth a Cheerful Giver” figurine is bound to fetch a reasonable price if it's in great condition.

Burton additionally proposed that make sure you clean the figurine well before posting it on eBay or bring it to an antique dealer.

He said that individuals should dust their figurines with a makeup brush and wash them delicately with mild, soapy water if needed. However, be mindful so as not to get any water inside.

Precious Moments, Inc. (PMI) was initially formed in 1978 by the illustrator Samuel J. Butcher, as a licensing company.

Meanwhile, another valuable collectible is the Hummel figurine, which was created by Berta Hummel, a Bavarian nun in a Franciscan convent.
