I was recently introduced to these adorable figurines and I instantly fell in love. I think it was both a combination of – of course – how adorable they are, but also the incredible history of the brand and how it became what it is today. M.I. Hummel is a company that has been making beautiful figurines for decades, and they continue the tradition year after year, producing new, gorgeous figurines that are perfect for anyone to collect and enjoy. My kids thought it was so neat that the founder, Sister Maria Innocentia Hummel, was an artist, a nun, and had such an incredible love for teaching children.
It is SO easy to fall in love with the handmade quality of the Hummel figurines – each piece sculpted by a master sculptor, carefully molded, and hand painted. It’s rare to have such high-quality art pieces in our disposable society so I love that about Hummel. If you love history, you will love this article depicting the history of M.I Hummel.
So many of their figurines incorporate a blend of traditional motifs and modern flair which make them perfect for young and old collectors alike. And no matter how good a person writes or how good a photo is, you just can’t appreciate these little gems until you hold one in your hand!
The special Winter Treasures Catalog that is filled with their Holiday promotions was just released! And, on top of those incredible deals, they have more great surprise deals to come! Be sure to check it out during your holiday shopping.
Hummel is known for their beautiful tradition of angel figurines, which are some of my favorites. I love the Annual Angels, a Series of figurines that Hummel produces a new piece for each year. This year’s angel is called Angel of Faith and is the first of three in a mini-series featuring the Three Divine Virtues. These angels are unique Hummel figurines as they feature gold-dipped wings. The next two years will feature Hope and Love making this the perfect time to begin your own Hummel collection! I have to say – seeing the Heavenly Angel figurine in person – it was simply magnificent.
Of course, when it comes to the holiday season, one naturally thinks of angels. I love Heavenly Angel which comes in a large 13” tall figurine as part of the Masterpiece Collection and there is a 4.25” size of the same figurine design. Shining Light is another gorgeous angel helping to illuminate your way this winter season.
In addition to the incredible figurines Hummel is known for, they also have some other products that feature angel motifs. These include candles, napkins, tin postcards, water globes, and the 2018 Hummel calendar.
