MI Hummel Goebel Figurine "She Loves Me, She Loves Me Not" TMK 3
In the heart of lower Bavaria, where the vibrant green rolling hills of the countryside meets the backdrop of the breathtaking Alps comes the legend of the Friday-born child. In contrast to other children, a Friday's child is said to be born with the gift of creativity and imagination; Berta Hummel was a Friday's child. From her early childhood days she was always buzzing from one activity to the next and that earned her the nickname "das hummele" or bumblebee. The bee would play a large part in the trade marks of the MI Hummel figurines she would create. Hummels, as they are affectionately known, are one of the most recognizable of all the world's collectibles. The innocence of childhood that each figurine exudes warms the heart as we reflect romantically on our own days of youth where we spent long days outside exploring and being lost in all glory the world had to offer. These idyllic creations were product of a wonderful partnership between Berta Hummel, Franz Goebel, and Berta's convent, the Siessen. But beyond reminding us of the magic of youthfulexuberanceand a place lost in time, each figurine pays testimony to Berta Hummel or as she came to be known, Sister Maria Innocentia Hummel, a truly magnificent soul who despite the difficulties and hardships she faced found a way to inject sunshine into a world dulled and damaged by sickness and war.

An Interesting History of MI Hummel Figurines and their beloved creator Berta Hummel
Berta Hummel was gifted artist from childhood. Her talent saw her through her graduation from the Munich School of Applied Arts at the top of her class. While in school she had befriended two sisters from the local convent, and she was torn between pursuing a career in the sisterhood, or as an artist when she left school.In the end Berta's devotion to God saw her enter the Siessen Convent shortly after graduation. It was not long after that she attended a symposium on kindergarten teaching that she brought along some of the sketches she had created as gifts for her students where they were discovered and passed on to someone who had them turned into postcards.
When Franz Goebel, owner of a porcelain factory saw these cards, he envisioned turning the designs into 3D figurines that could be exported to the US market. Eventually an agreement was made between Maria Innocentia Hummel, Franz Goebel and the Siessen Convent to which Berta belonged. All designs and creations needed to get approval from M. I. Hummel before production, even down to the coloring of the figurines. It was this agreement that would prove to be extremely beneficial to all parties involved.
During the height of the Third Reich in Germany, catholic run schools were closed and convents heavily taxed in order to shut them down. It was the royalties received by Berta, then known as Sister M. I Hummel, that helped to keep her convent open during these times. In addition it was the popularity of the Hummel figurines that allowed the Goebel factory to stay open during a time when layoffs threatened to put its work staff of 350 out of work due to the slow economy. As the war progressed Berta's convent was eventually taken over by the Nazis and changed into a repatriation center for Germans living in other countries. There was a handful of nuns that remained at the convent when it changed into Nazi control to help with the sick, and Sister Maria Innocentia Hummel was one of them. In choosing to stay she knew the sacrifices and risks involved, gone was her sunny art studio where she has spent so many happy days sketching and looking out of the glory of the rolling meadows , this was replaced by a dank and cold room in the basement. Having had a weakened immune system from a previous battle with the flu a number of years prior, Berta knew her health would probably suffer, but she continued to sketch and advise on the production of the Hummel figurines because it was her way of putting sunshine into a world that was increasingly gray and filled with sadness.
Eventually the Nazi's also confiscated the lands belonging to the convent which they used to grow food for the local population because they could sense a soft spot in the repatriated people towards the Catholic nuns. So in addition to the damp and cold living conditions they had to endure, they were also in essence slowly starved. These hardships and restrictions imposed by the Nazis took a toll on Berta's already compromised health and she suffered complications from a cold and developed a lung infection. By 1944 she suffered another relapse of her lung infection which caused her to leave the convent and remain in the hospital. It was during this time she learned that she had actually contracted tuberculosis. Faced with the diagnosis of TB she was given the opportunity to leave for Switzerland were it was felt she would have a better chance of recovery, but opted to stay instead in Bavaria with the hope that if she recovered she would be able to return to the convent. She was able to return for a brief period but again relapsed and was sent to a sanitarium to recover. Understanding her condition was deteriorating rapidly, Berta asked to be moved back to her beloved Siessen where she passed away within a month at the end of 1946.
After her death the Siessen Convent took over control of Hummel figurine production decisions. All designs needed to be approved by the convent before production and the royalties received went to pay for programs offered by the convent, so even in death, Berta continued to make a difference in people's lives.
