Goebel Hummel Figurine Three Kneeling/Praying Angels, HE 1/1, TMK-2, VERY RARE, 5" 4" & 3.5 tall. I can not find another one, much less this set of three. The middle angle has a tiny chip on her right wing (see photos). Figurines were first introduced to the German public in 1935.They were received well and became popular. During World War II, production of the figurines was restricted, but they were not forgotten. The actual creation of an M. Hummel figurine is a laborious process. When an image is selected for production, it is first sculpted in clay by an experienced artist.
Once the figurine is approved, the sculptor and the master mold maker make decisions regarding the production. The figurine must be able to be reproduced in molds, sometimes requiring the figurine to be molded and assembled in a series of pieces. The pieces are made from liquid ceramic, which is poured into plaster molds.
The pieces are assembled using more of the liquid ceramic as glue to hold them together. After the excess is removed, the figurine can be smoothed so that no seams can be seen. The figurines are allowed to dry completely then go through two firings in a kiln.They are fired a third time to ensure color bonding and soft surface. The figurines can then be painted. The paint colors used for this process were especially created to match the color palette that Berta Hummel herself used. Once the master painter prepares a sample figurine which meets approval, then the figurines can be painted to follow suit. Each one is lovingly painted by hand.
This is a long process, but well worth the wait.
