Hummel Figurines are showcased in many antique collectors cabinets. These porcelain figurines, based upon drawings by Sister Maria Innocentia Hummel, first became popular towards the end of the second world war. These porcelain ornaments were often gifted by soldiers in Germany to family back home in America. Although not an overly expensive item during this time, in today’s society Hummel Figurines have become greatly sort after antiques by keen collectors leading to a large price increase.
