During the 1930's a nun, Sister Maria Innocentia Hummel (Berta Hummel), began drawing images of children. The drawings drew the attention of a porcelain maker, Franz Goebel, who produced the first line of Hummels in Germany in 1935. They were very popular but during World War II the factory was closed down. However, after the war was over their popularity returned and they become known worldwide and quickly increased in value. The word Hummel means bumblebee in German and in 1950 Goebel changed to a high flying bee in a V as a tribute to Berta Hummel.
