The History of M I Hummel Figurines
M I hummel figurines were created by a warm, simple Bavarian girl whose name was Berta Hummel. Berta gained her artistic direction at an early age from the Institute of English Sisters. In 1931 Berta entered the covent of Siessen at Saulgua. Two years later she was ordained Sister Maria Innocentia. In 1933 sketches of her work were sent to a publishing company in Munich. Her first artworks were two dimensional, better known as "postcards". Franz Goebel of the W. Goebel Company became aware of her artwork in 1934 and sought permission to transform the art into three dimensional figures. This is where the relationship between Sister Maria Innocentia, the Convent and W. Goebel began. In 1946 after a long illness, Sister Maria Innocentia passed away atanearly age of 37 years.
The Goebel Company still produces the work of Berta Hummel today. All prototypes must still have the Convent approval before being produced. Sister Maria's love of children and art has allowed the generations to cherish and adore the pert faces of all MI Hummel figurines.
There have been some significant variations in Spring Cheer over its years of production. It was initially released in a yellow dress and with no flowers in the right hand. These can be found in the Crown Mark (TMK-1), the Full Bee (TMK-2), and the Stylized Bee (TMK-3). During the Stylized Bee (TMK-3), the figure was produced with a green dress and flowers in the right hand. Current pieces are configured in the latter way. However, some of the old (no flowers in right hand) models were left over, and these were painted with a green dress to match the new model. This is the rarer of the two green dress models and is worth $1,000-$1,200.
