Learn about Hummel Figures

Figures with cherubic grins and blushed cheeks you would just love to pinch, how could anyone not fall in love with the adorable little figures of boys in lederhosen and girls with pigtails that are known as 'Hummels'? M I Hummel figures are produced by renowned German porcelain manufacturer W Goebel Porzellainfabrik ('Goebel'). In the last few years these figures have gained a large collecting base in Australia and New Zealand. The figures are based on the caricatures of Maria Innocentia ('Berta') Hummel- an extremely talented German art student who went on to became a nun. Hummel figures have been produced by Goebel since 1935 and production continues today. All figures are readily identified by the engraved script MI Hummel trademark somewhere on the figure, usually on the base rim. Interestingly, the ownership of the designs and approval of production of all figures, still rests with the estate of Maria Innocentia Hummel (deceased) and the Convent of Siessen, even through to current releases.
