Advent is still some way off, but these figurines are already creating anticipation for the reflective season: a Madonna in pure elegance, two graceful hovering angels on celestial bodies to adorn fir greenery and tasteful Christmas decorations during Advent, and a cheerful Marguerite Angel with Jigsaw Puzzle are available from our authorized retailers and our own stores in Grünhainichen and Seiffen.
Grete Wendt designed the fairy tale figurine “Puss in Boots” in June 1929 and shod the cunning creature in oversized angular boots in bright red. The curve of his tail and the feathers in his hunting cap give our velvet-pawed hero movement and dynamism. The feathers appear to bob up and down with each jaunty step the cat takes. A 24-piece jigsaw puzzle (dimensions 14.8 x 21 cm) is an enchanting addition to the figurine, providing fun for the smallest friends of Wendt & Kühn. The figurine and the jigsaw puzzle are available in our own stores in Grünhainichen und Seiffen and from our authorized retailers.
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.
In this anniversary year we wanted to pay special tribute to them and show them from all sides. What was necessary to achieve this? Celestial models with green wings, a professional photographer and lots of technical equipment. The result is twelve striking images that demonstrate with a virtuoso play of light and shadow, and techniques that reveal what normally remains unseen, the journey these design classics make through the Grünhainichen workshops. And in this way they present in an imaginative and artistic way and with masterly skill what we normally take to be familiar things. Unique images and powerful graphics that celebrate the Eleven Dot Angels in a way that has never been done before await you. Here you can read more about the calendar and can place a pre-order.
The name of a child, the initials of two lovers linked by a beautiful &, the name of a significant place – the Marguerite Angels and our bright yellow letters can be used to spell out your own personal messages. To mark a birth, a wedding or as a gift to yourself to remind you of some special occasion. With a gentle smile our Marguerite Angels stand ready to surprise and delight. Both the angels and the letters stand on specially designed bases that permit them to be joined together easily.
The idea and execution could not have come at a more opportune moment, as our Gold Edition No. 15 carries the name “The Mindful One”. The angel reminds us that even the most ordinary, everyday things can seem like small miracles if we give them our full care and attention. The heavenly messenger carries in its hands a branch covered in 24-karat gold. The gently curved leaves, delicately worked stems and fine veins of the branch make it a symbol of how we should look after ourselves and others, together with nature and all its treasures. The angel with gold-plated base is available in a strictly limited edition – only 22,222 of these figurines will allow their owners to experience the magic of the moment.
