A variety of gifts

From the depths of the forest comes the tiny Marguerite Angel, spreading happiness and joy in the run-up to Christmas. He has lovingly wrapped up the gifts – with a bit of help from his heavenly friends. What do the parcels contain? The variety is almost limitless, because small as the Marguerite Angels may be, their talents are highly versatile. They can make lace, knit, sew, cook and bake. They decorate Christmas trees, repair toys and paint miniature works of art. Just like the people who take a delight in them. With a large selection of accessories, we can supply the right angel for every hobby, every preference and every passion.

Inside the
Christmas Bakery

During the Christmas season the aroma of cookies and gingerbread hangs in the air. The industrious Marguerite Angels merrily decorating the baked goodies and mixing fresh eggs, sugar and cocoa powder into chocolate icing on the stove. And because they take so much pleasure in this work, they feel most happy when surrounded by their baking utensils. Therefore, arrange these little bakers to set the scene in front of a colorful gingerbread house or an old-fashioned cookie jar – as if they just finished creating their masterpieces. Pastry cutters, anise stars and cinnamon sticks also make for appealing holiday settings.

A dream in
green and white

Forest green branches, white candles, an ethereal white ribbon – and Wendt & Kühn clip angels as highlights. With their white frock and green wings with the eleven dots, they are the crowning glory of this green/white dream. Those who are particularly into celebrating the magic of Advent clip another angel onto the wreath on each Advent Sunday – until the full Advent series is complete on the fourth Sunday. By the way: It doesn’t always have to be fir! In this wreath, delicate dwarf Alberta white spruce branches magnify the regal appearance and underscore the elegance of the angels.

Magnificent decorative pieces

With its long flowing robe and golden wreath of flowers on its head, the Richly Painted Angel from Wendt & Kühn is both graceful and elegant. At an impressive 17 centimeters high, the angel creates a real focal point all year round – whether on a sideboard or a shelf. Add some sheet music or a book of music to create an arrangement. A violin bow complements the scene perfectly.

The joys of winter

Winter is finally here. This charming duo – the Girl with Sleigh and the Boy with Tree – are a sweet foretaste of what we can look forward to: the first toboggan run, long winter walks with snowball fights, building snowmen and drinks of hot chocolate afterwards. They are the perfect companions for this final season of the year and a stylish gift for winter children, young and old.

Twinkle Twinkle Little Star

The famous Moon Family returned to our collection in May 2016 – looking just the same as when Olly Wendt designed them back in 1925. Now, more than 90 years on, Father Moon, Mother Sun and their four Star Children watch over young and old alike as they sleep. With their beaming faces they enchant all who see them, both by day and night, and make a heavenly gift to mark a birth, a christening or a birthday.

Wendt & Kühn around the world

A very special Christmas tree

A whole Christmas tree decorated with Wendt & Kühn Christmas tree angels is something many collectors dream of. In the Winter Wonderland exhibition at the Fernbank Museum Atlanta this dream has now become a reality. Our tree, with its very special decorations, is among other twinkling, beautifully decorated trees exhibited over two floors of the museum. In its captivating Winter Wonderland exhibition the museum showcases how festivals are celebrated all around the world: twinkling with lights, glimmering with color or, traditionally, with wax candles, apples and nuts. And amongst them all the Angels from Wendt & Kühn. An enchanting host of heavenly Angels.

Gift idea

Enchanting and enchanted

Santa`s hardworking little helpers, the Marguerite Angels, always have their hands full. Great dexterity is required for the ancient art of lace making and for painting the richly decorated red splinter boxes that have been reissued to mark the 100th anniversary of the Grünhainichen workshops. Our small master builder is a little more playful. Block by block it builds a tower as if in a dream, reminding us that from time to time we all need to recall those long-forgotten carefree days of childhood. These delicate angels make an attractive gift for all model railway enthusiasts, large and small, ambitious pastry cooks and industrious knitters.

Special exhibition at Wendt & Kühn World

For matters of the heart

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!”

Decorating tip

Merry Winter Children

White flakes dance through the air, delicate ice crystals frost window panes bathed in warm homey light and the scent of snow is all around: winter has arrived. The Girl with Sleigh and the Boy with Tree are the perfect companions through the year’s fourth season. An ideal twosome to enchant all your guests whether on your table or atop your mantle. And may just prompt long walks out in the crisp winter air, building snowmen, having snowball fights, and of course warming back up afterwards with a cup of piping hot chocolate. Enjoy the season.

Enigmatic night owls

Masterpieces of figurative craftsmanship

In May 2018 a masterly trio of owls joined our collection. They are a reissue of figurines that first appeared in the company catalog for 1930. No other group of figurines from Wendt & Kühn combines perfection of form and color as impressively as these owls. The way they are painted is quite unique and makes them true masterpieces of figurative craftsmanship. An exclusive video shows the painstaking work that goes into their production and how the unique paint effects are achieved. You will be amazed!
