Tn marvelous condition, the Follow The Leader stands 6.25 x 3.25 x 7 inches tall with a total weight of 1# 7 oz. The book value for this Hummel in great condition is between $1,500 & $1,600. This fine heirloom is from the living estate of Ailene & Buddy Ford, respected, longtime dealers of valuable antiques. ********************************************************************** Sister Maria Innocentia Hummel and the Convent of Siessen, and the Goebel exclusive relationship began in 1934 when the endearing drawings of the talented Franciscan nun came to the attention of Bavarian porcelain manufacturer Franz Goebel. He proposed to the Convent and to Sister Maria Innocentia that her artwork be translated into three-dimensional form. The first figurines were introduced in 1935. M.I. Hummel figurines were originally based on the artwork of Sister M.I. Hummel who loved children. Most of her artwork is comprised of only children, although she did draw many inspirational and religious works of art as well. Since many of her drawings were in black and white and only depicted the front of her subjects, the collection was expanded to include interpretive figurines. Interpretive figurines, like all M.I. Hummel figurines, must be of a child or children and include subject matter that Sister Maria Innocentia would have seen in Bavaria, Germany, circa the 1930s. Sister Maria Innocentia Hummel passed in 1946 from tuberculosis, at the tender young age of 37.
