Sorry about your beautiful Hummels.
What I would do is take the shattered pieces and use them on the surface of the dirt around potted plants as a way to keep critters out and help slow evaporation.
Ruth: maybe these will help
If you have the patience, consider getting a piece of canvas and gluing them on the canvas for a 3-D art object. It won't matter if some of the pieces are missing. You could do each separately or (depending on how many were broken) put all on one large canvas. It can be very interesting. Check at a craft store (or google) for a good pottery / china glue that will dry clear.
Paint in Halloween colors and use in a fairy garden scene- broken arms, legs and heads no problem!
If they have no value to you I would spray paint them white. The white figures will look more modern and can be displayed on a shelf.
Nooo! I hope you didn't paint them! Most Hummel figurines are very valuable and if correctly restored they can retain -or at least not diminish- their value.
I think sometimes people will just throw an answer without first thinking of the actual consequence. I hope you could save them.
