Famous HUMMEL statues fly around Europe. They make Goebel unique and famous for many years as "Hummelwerk". In 1971, the Goebel company celebrated its 100th anniversary. The culmination of the 100th anniversary celebration was the unveiling of a monument in the form of a Hummel figurine of a boy. On May 21, 1909, a girl named Berta (Berta Hummel) was born in the family of a merchant Adolf Hummel in the Bavarian town of Massing. From an early age, Berta enthusiastically drew, and at the age of 12, she was accepted to a girls' school in Simbach, where the English Fraulein Catholic order taught. Here she created her first illustrations for Friedrich W. Weber's book. Her paintings impressed the sisters so much that they sent several copies to a publishing house in Munich specializing in books on religious art. And it released Berta's works in the form of postcards, which were very popular at that time. In 1934, a collection of Berta's drawings was published. Soon after, Franz Goebel, the owner of the porcelain production, saw these postcards in one of the Munich shops. Goebel was just looking for a new artistic line for his factory. He suggested producing porcelain figurines based on Berta's drawings. In 1935, the statues had a staggering success at the Leipzig trade fair. Porcelain figurines continued to be produced in Germany until the end of 2008. M.I. Hummel signed her works not only with her name, but sometimes with the image of a bumblebee - a kind of "coat of arms", a symbol of her surname. Height - 11 cm.
