“Genuine M.I. Hummel products are an original work of
art created by Goebel Master Artists and based on then drawings of Sister Maria
Innocentia Hummel. They are hand-crafted and handpainted according to the
traditions of artistic excellence established by W. Goebel Porzellanfabrik, Germany,
more than a century ago. Only a genuine M.I. Hummel product bears the Goebel
backstamp and the signature of Maria Innocentia Hummel. Members of the U.S.
military became acquainted with M.I. Hummel figurines when they were stationed
in Germany and spread their popularity throughout the America. To show their
appreciation to these enthusiastic collectors of M.I. Hummel and in tribute to
their deeds, Goebel has produced the Berlin Freedom Edition Series figurines
for U.S. forces. Each comes with numbered certificate of authenticity and
Among them are the “Crossroads Edition” and the “Berlin
Airlift Memorial”. They were produced in limited editions especially to
commemorate events in the U.S. military history- events that you or your
parents experienced. They stand as tributes to the men and women who have
served and are serving their country, whether defending its freedom or
celebrating the rebirth of liberty as the birthright of all. Production of the
Crossroads Edition has been completed by the factory. To complete this series,
Goebel has now created “Checkpoint Charlie”- one of the significant symbols of
the Cold War.
This commemorative edition includes the M.I. Hummel
figurine “Solider Boy” standing next to the Checkpoint Charlie replica. In
tribute to the U.S. military personnel this replica bears a special backstamp
and is sequentially numbered limited edition of 20,000 pieces. The finished
wooden base has an inscription recognizing the accomplishments of the U.S.
military that have helped people everywhere to be free.
