A lovely addition to your festive decor for the holiday season! Perfect to round out the collection of any Hummel fan!
A pretty Christmas themed round plate from W. Goebel-Hummelwerk of West Germany.
This was the very first instalment (“First Edition”) of the popular Hummel Annual Plates.
Rarer and more desirable than the annual plates that followed, this is a must have item for both the casual and serious collector of Hummel ceramics.
In excellent condition.
Hummel figurines were first fashioned in 1934 after the paintings of Sister Maria Innocentia (nee Berta Hummel, 1909 to 1946) by sculptors Reingold Unger (1880 to 1974) and Arthur Moller (1886 to 1972) of W. Goebel Porzelanfabrik in Germany.
Sister Maria Innocentia’s (her maiden name was Berta Hummel) Hummel figurines were first introduced to collectors in 1935 by the Goebel company.
Goebel rendered these charming figurines from the sweet paintings of Sister Maria Innocentia which featured young children at play.
Several of her artworks were meant to support issues that she personally sympathized with and championed, such as pacifism.
The figurines enjoyed a high degree of collectability for many years. They were a favourite item for members of various armed forces stationed in Germany to send to their overseas homes.
In 2008 production of Hummel figurines moved from the Goebel manufactory to the Hochster Porzellan Fabrik company.
Sister Maria passed away in her early thirties. Her legacy of paintings and figurines continue to delight collectors around the world.
