M. I. Hummel
The company M. I. Hummel
M. I. Hummel is a traditional company from Rödental in Upper Franconia in Bavaria, which was founded in 1935 and is today appreciated all over the world for its artisan crafts. The brand is best known for its small, intricately designed and hand-painted porcelain figurines, the so-called Hummel figurines, which have been produced in a wide variety of versions and finishes for over 80 years.
These figurines are based on the designs of their creative namesake, Maria Innocentia Hummel, a Franciscan nun who exercised her artistic talent with drawings of children playing and other motifs in the convent. When these were discovered by an entrepreneur with an interest in art, the success story took its course.

The product range of M. I. Hummel includes mainly Hummel figurines of various kinds, but also nativity figures, murals, lamps, candlesticks, votive kettles, plates, display signs and Christmas tree ornaments. All of these products are related to the Hummel figurines.
The best-known figures are without a doubt the Hummel figurines of which over 1000 different have now been created.
