Description

Welcome to view our listing of this MJ Hummel Goebel Merry Wanderer TMK 7 West Germany Figurine with bee mark.

On the bottom side of this figurine is embossed 11 2/0 with an embossed number 7 with a blue bee mark with blue stamped W. Germany and a black magic marker A mark. M. J. Hummel is embossed on the left side bottom of the base.

This figurine is in fair condition with the exception of a tiny hole in left side underside of jacket with some crazing on the pant leg and base of this figurine. Catalog Value - $430 - $455 plus 7 button rarity. This figure was produced in the 1958-1972 period.

Berta Hummel was born in Bavaria in 1909 with a wonderful gift - an instinct for observing her world and translating her observations into drawings, especially of children. In 1927, Berta enrolled in Munich's famed Academy of Applied Arts. There her talent matured and survived rigid training with its spontaneity intact.

Religion had always been important to Berta. She befriended two Franciscan Sisters from a teaching order that emphasized the arts. Berta decided to enter the Convent of Siessen upon graduation in 1931, and three years later, took the name Maria Innocentia.

The young Sister found herself in a setting that encouraged her talents. Soon, small German publishers began printing some of her artwork in the form of postcards. These charming cards came to the attention of Franz Goebel, the head of a porcelain company bearing his name. He was in search of a subject for a new line of figurines. And here it was!

Franz Goebel proposed to Sister Hummel the idea of transforming her drawings into figurines. An agreement was reached with the Convent granting Goebel the sole right to create three-dimensional works of art based on Sister Hummel's drawings.

The artist worked personally with Goebel Master Sculptors and Painters to create the new products. The first figurines were introduced in 1935 and were immediately successful.

Tragically, Sister Hummel died in 1946 at only 37 years of age. But her artistic legacy was carried on by Goebel.
M.I. Hummel.

In early 2009, Manufaktur Rödental took over ownership of the M.I. Hummel brand, continuing the M.I. Hummel tradition of artistry in the same Rödental, Germany factory where the figurines have been created for over 75 years. A team of skilled craftspeople work with loving care, ensuring the artistic excellence that is the hallmark of these precious earthenware treasures continues.

Today, M.I. Hummel figurines remain the world's most beloved collectibles, a tribute to the spirit of childhood that they so masterfully reflect, and to the talent of a brilliant artist.
