Angelic little children were the trademark of artist Berta
Hummel, who was born in Bavaria in 1909. In 1931
when Berta graduated from the Academy and took her vows to become a sister, she also took the name Maria Innocentia, hence the name M I Hummel. A copy of this famous Hummel signature is printed in gold on the reverse of each thimble that we will be offering to you, some you may have seen before, giving you another chance to add the ones you may have missed to your collection.
