Over the years, Goebel has used some of the distinctive Hummel trademarks (mainly the Bumble Bee) for some of its porcelain collectibles.An example might be a set of the Disney "Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs." In other words, Hummels cannot be identified exclusively by the fact they may have a "Bee" stamped or incised on the underside.It was discontinued while in TMK 6 with a FINAL ISSUE in 1988.Hummels are porcelain figurines, plates, miniatures, lamps, bells, plaques and other distinctive collectibles which are made by W. Goebel is the exclusive manufacturer and worldwide distributor of Hummels.Not all Goebel products are Hummels, but Goebel makes all Hummels.This is one of the largest Hummels produced as indicated by the Roman Numeral "II".While Crown Editions and Full Bees (TMK 2) are highly prized, the Stylized Bee (TMK 3) is also very desirable.
Infrequently, we find a Full Bee stamped and a Crown incised.
The earliest trademark was called the Crown Edition where either an incised or stamped "crown" appeared on the underside of the Hummel as shown below.
Identifying marks on the UNDERSIDE of Hummels tell the Hummel Model Number (HUM), the size indicator (Arabic and Roman Numerals), the year of release (usually the year after the production year), and sometimes the paint and/or painters code numbers (incised Arabic numbers or script initials). Also, during the third and fourth trademark periods (called Stylized Bee and three-line Bee, respectively, from 1957 to 1972), Trade Marks 5, 6, and 7 all used Goebel and W. TMK 5 (1972-79) was distinguished by being the last time the "V" and Bee were used in combination with Goebel and W. Then in 1991 up to the present, TMK 7 brought back the "Crown" which had been used for TMK 1 from 1935-1949.
During the division of Germany into East and West, various other labels were used, e.g., Made in U. Currently, all editions of Hummels are called Closed Editions (CE) except some TMK6 and most of the TMK 7 are still Open Editions (OE).
TMK 8 was introduced late 1999 and now used for Hummels into the year 2000.Sometimes there are "Double Crowns" with one incised and the other stamped under the glaze.
