Wendt & Kühn’s precious and timelessly beautiful music boxes combine seasonal tunes such as “Silent Night” and “We wish you a Merry Christmas” with charming scenes. Angels, Santa Claus and his hard-working helpers tell stories full of harmony and love.
The Eleven Dot Angels first appeared on a decorated Christmas tree in the mid-1920s and were joined later by the Marguerite Angels. On Christmas trees and floral arrangements these heavenly messengers still make eyes light up and the whole room sing.
For many collectors their host of angels has now become a full blown orchestra. Wendt & Kühn’s Angel Mountains make a stylish setting for major performances by these angel musicians. There is plenty of space for the angels to expresses themselves musically on the three, five and even six-tiered mountains.
The notes the angel is holding in its hands appear to be dancing up and down. It embodies most impressively the magic that music generates. It awakens emotions without the need for words. But what is the melody hiding within the notes on the stave? With the first notes of “Happy Birthday”, the composer strikes up what is probably the best-known birthday song – to mark the anniversary of the Eleven Dot Angels and the birthdays of all their admirers. Lovingly fashioned by hand the figurine expresses the skill of the craftsman in creating an exclusive work of art. This angel will bestow on its owner the magic of music throughout their life.
This angel continues the range of unique pieces which now includes 16 figurines. The edition with the gold-plated base will only be manufactured this year and is limited to 22,222 pieces. This Gold Edition is available at both our ‘Worlds’ in Grünhainichen and Seiffen and from authorized retailers.
The sight of these gorgeous Christmas tree decorations gives us a tantalizing glimpse into the future where we can already imagine how wonderful these angels will look on Advent wreaths, Christmas trees, Christmas floral arrangements and gifts. The figurines are available from our authorized retailers and from our in-house stores in Grünhainichen and Seiffen.
The days are getting markedly shorter. Following a glorious summer in the great outdoors, we are now entering the season for cozy indoor pursuits. As well as the golden days of autumn we can also expect some cold and rainy ones. And then the time of reading and playing games begins. A wealth of fairy tales is waiting to be read aloud once again - like “The Sterntaler” by the Brothers Grimm. With her red dress and apron full of stars that have fallen from the sky, our figurine the “Sterntaler Girl” recalls the heroine of this fairy tale. And when the covers of the book are finally closed, it is time to get out the matching jigsaw puzzle. A wonderful activity to do indoors in miserable autumnal weather.
The “Sterntaler Girl” and matching jigsaw puzzle are available from our in-house stores in Grünhainichen and Seiffen and from your local retailer.
2023 will be the year of the Eleven Dot Angels: Grete Wendt designed the first green-winged heavenly messengers in 1923 and thus the 100th birthday of this design classic is approaching. 100 years of Eleven Dot Angels also stands for 100 years full of experiences, emotions and stories that are inextricably linked to our small heavenly messengers and that bring them to life. We would love you to share your angel stories with us. Here you can get more information about the campaign and send us your text.
