Melodious and heart-warming ...

... rhythmic and floral are how this year’s new spring additions from Wendt & Kühnm present themselves. In this, the year of Olly Wendt, we are also introducing some very special creations by this talented designer - from cheeky penguins to graceful angels.

All our new products are available to purchase from Wendt & Kühn’s own stores in Grünhainichen and Seiffen and from your specialist retailer.

To mark an anniversary

100 years have passed since Olly Sommer, later Wendt, arrived at the Wendt & Kühn workshops and matured into a highly talented designer. We are celebrating the anniversary of her joining the company with a reissue of a very special Olly Wendt design that she created in February 1925: The angel holding a golden heart and flower, whose petals can be used to hold a candle.

Courageous explorers

With their friendly demeanor and charming nature, this trio from Wendt & Kühn is perfect for all lovers of owls. And a wonderful gift for brilliant minds and bold operators, small eggheads and courageous explorers, too. As prudent counsellors in all situations, a source of wisdom in the workplace and with keen insight that will last forever.

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.

New special exhibition at Wendt & Kühn World

Commission accepted!

It was often everyday things that gave Grete Wendt the inspiration to create new figurines. Native meadow flowers or school children in front of the half-timbered house on Chemnitzer Straße. But she was also approached with numerous requests from outside. Companies, institutions and the state approached Grete Wendt to have the designer realize their ideas.

At Wendt & Kühn World in Grünhainichen, our special exhibition “Commission accepted! Special edition figurines for companies, institutions and specialist retailers” have on display selected commissions. Join us until 29 March 2020 every day from 10am to 5pm to follow our fascinating research.

Insights into Wendt & Kühn

Fairy tale magic

Autumn and winter are the time for fairy tales. In 1929 Grete Wendt also felt inspired to create another fairy tale design. This group of figurines depicts the scene in which Red Riding Hood approaches grandmother’s bed. Take a close look at how beautifully the wolf in grandmother’s clothing is portrayed. And the intricately painted decoration on the bed is also astonishing.

We have put together a detailed series of photos showing how our Wolf in Four-Poster Bed is made using the finest craftsmanship. Prepare to be amazed!

Globetrotter photo campaign

Going on a journey…

…means there are stories to tell. After a whole year of globetrotting, our angel has much to report: from hot sand dunes, to windy coastlines and snow-capped peaks. Our Globetrotter has lived up to its name and visited more than 300 destinations on 6 continents. This has completely exceeded our expectations when we launched our appeal last summer. We would like to take this opportunity to thank all of you who took part. (The winners of the prize draw have already been notified.)

As it would be too bad if all your submissions just disappeared into a photo album, we have decided to keep the picture gallery up and running and we look forward to receiving more of your Globetrotter holiday photos.

Gift idea

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!”
