The company which was to become W Goebel Porzellanfabrik, was founded in Thuringia, in Germany, in 1871 by Franz Goebel and his son, William. In the early days the firm produced mainly fancy figurines and dinner ware, but as the influence of the younger Goebel was felt, the product line was expanded. Goebel attracted some of Europe's finest sculptors and contemporary artists and a succession of sons took the company forward into the world markets.
In the 1930's the artwork of Franciscan Sister, Maria Innocentia Hummel, came to
the attention of Franz Goebel and from this came the famous partnership of M I
Hummel & Goebel. Sister Hummel died at the age of 37 in 1946, but figurines
based on her paintings, and her artistic legacy, have been carried on by Goebel
to this day. The name of Goebel is synonymous with that of M I Hummel and her
child figures which are amongst the world's most beloved figurines.
