Manufactured by Goebels, a German company started in 1871, these figurines are the artistic designs of Sister M.I. Hummel, recreated in three-dimensional fine German porcelain by the artists at Goebels.
Featuring children, their innocence and their mischief, her designs were first introduced in 1935.
Technically they are called Goebel’s Hummel figurines because it was the Goebel company that manufactured them. Sister Hummel created the designs, but Goebel made the pieces in the series. Although she passed away in 1946, the popularity of her designs continues.
In very good condition other than a hairline crack on the base (please see photo's)
