Ever wonder why those little ceramic figurines called “Hummel” are so expensive? Stop wondering and join us for a "pay your way" inexpensive luncheon to learn about the Goebel “Hummel” collection inspired by Sister Maria Innocentia Hummel’s paintings of her early 1900s childhood memories, based on the innocence, curiosity, and traditions of Bavarian children. Meet collectors and make new friends.
Learn why each “Hummel” figurine is a piece of art unto itself. From its multi-pieced construction to its hand painting, no two Hummels are alike – even from the same mold. Learn why no “Hummel” is ever put on the market without its design first being approved by the convent of Siessen at Saulgau and undergoing rigorous quality control measures.
Learn what makes a piece rare, worth thousands of dollars. The coveted trademarks (TMKs 1 – 3), from the early 1930s through the early 1970s, can have collectors from around the world clamoring to buy pieces at unexpected prices, based on their desire to own a rarity.
Did your parents, grandparents of even great grandparents leave you a funky little ceramic figurine with an embossed “M I HUMMEL” signature on its base? Don’t throw it away, learn about it, feel the enthusiasm of the collectors at our club luncheon. Who knows, you may catch the fever.
Join the club for nominal $10/yr dues and participate in luncheons on a local club level, attend national and international conventions, meet interesting and enthusiastic collectors, travel to Bavaria to take a tour of the Goebel factory where all “Hummels” are exclusively hand made. Meet and talk to the designers/painters who have, for decades, made a career of working on Hummels. See what charities the local club chapter supports.
