TMK-2 The Full Bee (1940-1959)
In 1950 Goebel paid tribute to Sister Hummel and the trademark was changed to a bee flying high within a V. The name Hummel in German means bumblebee and the V stands for “Verkaufsgesellschat” or Distribution Company. This new mark was called the Full Bee and was used until 1955.
There are twelve variations of the Bee mark to be found on Goebel-produced M.I. Hummel items, but the differences between them are not considered particularly significant.
The Full Bee mark, also referred to as TMK-2 or abbreviated FB, is the first of the Bee marks to appear. The mark evolved over almost twenty years until the company began to modernize it. It is sometimes found in an incised circle.
The very large bee flying in the V remained until around 1956, when the bee was reduced in size and lowered into the V. It can be found incised, stamped in black or stamped in blue, in that order.The Goebel Company still produces the work of Berta Hummel today.
The next changes are mind boggling and this is where collector’s get confused.
- In 1956 the trademark was modified to a smaller bee with it’s wing tips parallel with the top of the V.
- In 1957 it changed again with the bee slightly raised above the V.
- In 1958 the bee was smaller yet and it flew deep within the V.
- With all of these changes to the trademark, they are all still considered to be a tmk-2.
- The year 1959 saw the beginning of the “Stylized Bee”, which has sharp angular wings
