The famous Moon Family was created by Olly Wendt, née Sommer in 1925. Father Moon, Mother Sun and their four Star Children not only watch over young and old as they sleep, their beaming faces enchant all who see them by night and by day. Whether arranged on our wall display, as a group on a shelf or with matching colored baubles in a glass vase – the Moon Family is always a real eye-catcher however you display them.
During Advent and Christmas our Angels worked all hours. As an orchestra they played tune after tune, as Christmas tree decorations they made eyes shine, fastened to golden clips they added the finishing touch to gifts, and they decorated the festive table with style. So now these Angels need their well-deserved summer sleep.
The Slumber Vault has been specially designed for your Angel Musicians. Its 36 velour-lined compartments in different sizes will ensure your Angels sleep in peace. Even the Angel at Grand Piano is well protected. The Special Slumber Vault provides the perfect summer home for your Christmas Tree Angels, Angels on Comet Tails, Stars and Moons and Angels on Clips. A place where your Angels can rest until their next grand entrance.
One name is inextricably linked with Wendt & Kühn: Olly Wendt (née Sommer). To mark her 125th birthday in 2021 we have produced a book in a limited edition of 1,920 copies. The number of copies corresponds to the year in which this talented designer started working at the Grünhainichen manufactory, five years after the foundation of Wendt & Kühn.
Through a series of individual episodes emerges an authentic portrait of this exceptional personality.
The Christmas tree angels from Wendt & Kühn have once again provided the spirit of Christmas. And now we ring out the Christmas season with them. Here in the Erzgebirge, they traditionally stay with us until Candlemas on February 2. The sounds of the saxophone, harmonica, maracas and clarinet can still be clearly distinguished. These are the instruments of our new angels on celestial bodies and our suspended Grünhainichen Angel® and Marguerite Angel, all of whom joined the collection in the fall. Another angel with beautifully wrapped gifts on its knee perches in the branches on a golden clip and along with the small Santa Claus on a Star observes for a while the happy goings-on in this new year.
It’s certainly no secret that the musical talents of our Grünhainichen Angels® are known around the world. But even offstage, they still sing to our hearts – as our Angel with Letter and Flowers. As an ambassador of the heart, this cherub makes a gift sure to delight any special loved one. And not just on birthdays or Christmas. Especially as a lovely little surprise in good as well as hard times, from a heartfelt apology to a sincere thank you. A figurine to let all those special people know: “I’m so glad you’re in my life!”
