Goebel Hummel Figurines

Goebel Hummel Figurines

Sister Maria Innocentia Hummel signed her noted agreement with the porcelain firm, W. Goebel Porzellanfahrik,on January 9th, 1935, which gave the porcelain company permission to turn Sister Hummel’s drawings into M. I. Hummel figurines.

During World War II, the M. I. Hummel figurine production was restricted. Once the war ended, the M. I. Hummel figurines again appeared in the shops throughout Germany.

Many of what I call the Traditional Hummel Figurine is based on Bavarian culture.  Think of Heidi.

Surprise:  Traditional Hummel

I have the pleasure of offering several hundred Goebel Hummel figurines as part of a friend's estate.

Most are in excellent condition, many have original boxes.  Below is a group of Occupational Hummel Figurines.
