Since the mid 1900’s, Hummel figurines have been a popular collectible for many people all over the world. 2009 was the 100th anniversary of the birth of Hummel's artwork creator Berta Hummel. The childlike innocence of each piece exudes sentiment and warmth. Because each Hummel figure piece is highly valued and extremely collectible, a watchful eye should be kept. A real Hummel figurine will always have its creator, Sister Maria Innocentia Hummel’s signature embossed on the bottom (M.I. Hummel). This very distinguishing mark signifies the real thing. Additionally, each of the MI Hummel figurines has a mold number embossed on the bottom to signify what piece it is. The Goebel mark is also embossed on each of the Goebel figurines. Manufaktur Rodental purchased the Goebel company and now produces the adorable children figurines under a new mark since 2009.
Hummel figurines are highly valued by countless collectors. Sometimes pieces can be worth as much as a few thousand dollars, depending on how rarity. Hummel collector’s clubs discuss the latest pieces, hard to find figurines, and where to buy new ones. If you own Hummel figurines and would like to know the value, many companies and individuals can offer fair and honest appraisals. There are also several different price guides available that can be purchased.
Collectible plates, ornaments, music boxes, and candleholders are also available, although they may not be as high in value as the original figurines. For a true fan of Hummel, these are just as special because they bear the artwork of Berta Hummel (her name prior to ordination in the Convent of Siessen). Whether you are a Hummel collector looking to add a new piece to an existing collection, want to start a new one, or you’re looking for the perfect Christmas gift, Hummel figurines are a wonderful choice that will stand the test of time.
