The story begins in 1909 when Hummel Berta Hummel was born. His artistic talent became evident at an age early and he was encouraged by their teachers and families to improve their skills. While pursuing his dream of becoming an artist, entered at the Academy of Applied Arts in 1927. In the Munich school, he met two Franciscan nuns and became friends. After completion his studies, he moved to the convent where she became Siess Sor Maria Innocentia Hummel and devoted his life to his religious beliefs.

While Siess in the convent, Sister Hummel works of art has been noticed by the owner of a manufacturer of porcelain Goebel. After negotiations between Goebel and convent of Siess, Hummel Goebel has agreed to allow the manufacture of figurines. But would not abdicate its role in the creation of one of collectables world's most popular. She and the convent of Siess retained a role in controlling the development and quality of images before that were sold. While the brand is at the bottom MI Hummel Figures Goebel, who wanted to make sure they were worthy of his name and works of art.

Hummels Goebel
Why was this question reported and is it worth it to appeal?

It was just “reported” not a violation. I asked in the genealogy category:

“Can you tell me anything about this Goebel (same company that made Hummels) cat figurine?”

Then I described the figurine in the details and explained that I found it in a box of stuff from a relative and wanted to know what year it was from. The first answer I got was a really crappy attitude one telling me not to post this in the genealogy category because it was about antiques and they were really insulting and mean about it. So I guess that would be who reported it.
There IS NO collectibles category. And it was related to genealogy because the reason I wanted the date is to learn more about my family.
If I posted it in “sculpture” they would have told me the same thing. It’s not in any way related to sculpture either!

First, the question should have been posted here: Home > All Categories > Arts & Humanities > Visual Arts > Sculpture. Genealogy is not the appropriate place to put it.

Second, appealing the violation is not at all recommended. All this will result in Customer Care upholding the violation and 10 points will be assessed from you score-in addition to a 10-point penalty for the offending question. It’s not worth the bother.
