The art of craftsmanship

Wendt & Kühn has stood for fine German craftsmanship at its most beautiful since 1915. At Wendt & Kühn, the mastery and artistry of figurine manufacturing has been passed down from generation to generation. We draw on a wealth of original samples and designs in conscientiously developing them in contemporary interpretations.

That`s what our “My Wendt & Kühn” offer is all about: High-quality unique pieces, never to be duplicated again in all the world. A distinctively personal way to say “thanks”, extend birthday wishes or commemorate a baptism. The Grünhainichen figurines are always delighted to take on the role of a personable well-wisher.

Slumber Vaults

Recommendation of the Month

During Advent and Christmas, our angels have played many rounds as an orchestra, made eyes light up as Christmas tree decorations, made gifts eye-catching on golden clips, or decorated the festive table in style. Now the angels have well earned their summer sleep. Safe they rest in a slumber vault: There is room for 36 angels in compartments lined with velour in different sizes. The special slumber vault offers your Christmas tree angels, the angels on tail, comet, star and moon as well as the angels on clip an optimal summer place. Here they linger until their next big appearance.

The slumber vaults are available from your local retailer and our own stores in Grünhainichen and Seiffen.

A Clever Cat in Big Boots

Novelties in August

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.

Anniversary Calendar 2023

100th Birthday of the Eleven Dot Angels

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.
