Collectible Hummel Figurines

Hummel figurines are some of the most sought after of the porcelain figurine collectibles with several of the models valued in the hundreds and even thousands of dollars.  Examples of some of the more valuable of the pieces are "For Father", "Globe Trotter", "Little Goat Herder", and "Going to Grandmas".

Hummel figurines, also known as M. I. Hummel figurines are based on the art work of Sister Maria Innocentia Hummel.  Originally her drawings were of country children painted as art cards.

In the 1930’s Sister Maria was introduced to Franz Goebel who ran a porcelain firm in Germany.  Based on her artwork he wanted to produce a line of figurines depicting the innocence of childhood.  Goebel provided clay mockups of some of her drawings which she approved and soon after granted sole rights of her drawings to Goebel.  She personally approved the sculpting and painting of each porcelain piece.

The mark of Sister M. I. Hummel is incised on every piece. Sister Hummel requested that her personal stamp of approval would appear on every piece and under the direction of the members of the convent, approvals were made with care. All Hummels have a mold number which is a number that is incised on the bottom of each M. I. Hummel figurine at the factory. Another
definitive identifier is the Goebel stamp on the underside of the figurine which is an official Goebel trademark. The trademark has changed a few times over the years and each time it does it creates a stir in the Hummel collectible community.

As with all types of collectibles, condition and rarity will affect value, but don't let anyone tell you that your Hummel figurine is not collectible or not valuable.
