In the 1930s, pastoral sketches of children by Sister Maria Innocentia Hummel began to appear in Germany and Switzerland, especially on postcards. The idyllic illustrations eventually caught the eye of porcelain maker Franz Goebel, who acquired the rights to turn the drawings into porcelain collectible figurines. Though the figurines are the most notable and popular creations from the original Hummel drawings, other Hummel items exist. Among them is a set of lithographed buttons that will be available in part two of the Beverly Hills Estate Auction at Lion and Unicorn.
The sale includes items from a large, single-owner estate in Beverly Hills, California, and it particularly features glass and porcelain items, clothing, jewelry, Judaica, and more. Some of the notable lots include sculptural works by Israeli architect and sculptor Frank Meisler, such as a silver and gold-plated cast metal sculpture depicting Noah’s Ark. Bidders will also find a platinum diamond engagement ring, a Carolina Herrera sleeveless black evening gown, a vintage Singer sewing machine with work bench, and more. View any of these lots and register to bid on Lion and Unicorn.
