Of merry angels and the magic of the stars

At present, as the sun smiles down on us from a bright blue sky, autumn seems a long way off. But this most beautiful time of the year, with its splendor of brightly colored leaves is fast approaching. Deep in thought, the Richly Painted Angel delicately strokes the strings of its violin and strikes up a soft autumn melody. Our Angel in the Toy Village and the Sterntaler Girl are also here to get you in tune with the shorter days to come. And merry angels join them in adding a festive touch.

All our new autumn products will be available in Wendt & Kühn’s own stores in Seiffen and Grünhainichen from August 18, 2018. Our authorized retailers will be selling these from August 20, 2018.

For cozy hours

Stitches Fever

For several years now knitting has gained more and more followers as a popular leisure activity. But why are so many people so passionate about a ball of yarn? Knitting is entertaining. Knitting is also relaxing – for both women and men. For knitting is not about speed, it is all about the process itself. Stitch by stitch the unique hand-made article grows. Knitting needles clicked industriously in the 1930s, too. This was when the founder of the company, Grete Wendt, designed “functional” figurines to keep yarn safe, prevent it from getting in a tangle and protect it from playful cats: the Knitting Ladies. Today, as in the past, the unique shape of these Knitting Ladies and their detailed accessories leave a very strong impression. And not only on fans of fine knitwear.

Special exhibition at Wendt & Kühn World

Animal and fairy tale magic

When you see owls meeting up with penguins, the “Sterntaler Girl” hanging out with Cinderella, and little Tom Thumb bumping into Puss in Boots, you know that fairy tale magic has come to Wendt & Kühn. Our special exhibition “In the realm of the imagination – figurines depicting fairy tales, animals and children” presents a selection of them at
Wendt & Kühn World in Grünhainichen – together with rare drawings and old children’s books. Experience this animal and fairy tale magic every day from 10am to 5pm. We look forward to welcoming you!

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!

Autmn decorating tips

Bright colors for fall

Days are gradually getting shorter, birds are making their way south and leaves on the trees delight us with their magnificent display of color – fall in all its beauty has arrived. And Wendt & Kühn’s children with lanterns are an integral part of this atmospheric time of year. They carry their colorful lanterns with pride. Arranged on a bureau or sideboard they bring a warm and festive atmosphere to any room.
