Design riches

Safe and secure behind our old solid walls in Grünhainichen
lies a priceless treasure left to us by Grete Wendt and her friend
Olly Wendt, née Sommer: A veritable treasure trove, in fact –
more than 2500 unmistakable original sketches, designs and
samples – the actual wellspring of our current collection.

Because we remain faithful to the original samples, our figurines and music boxes retain their genuine expression of form and color. Each individual article becomes a fascinating work of art radiating grace, beauty, tradition and exclusivity. And perhaps this is why our unique collection of exclusive, timeless and prized pieces appeals to so many collectors and enthusiasts. For those who give from their heart. Those who have come to treasure our Wendt & Kühn figurines as tasteful decorative items as well as elegant complements to festive occasions. And those who feel incredibly fortunate enough to be able to spread some joy with something extraordinary, including to themselves.

Ever since 1915, Wendt & Kühn has stood for fine German craftsmanship at its most beautiful. The artistic mastery and manual finesse in producing figurines has never once wavered, generation after generation. The treasured legacy bequeathed to us has been passed down through the decades in a spirit of conscientious further development accompanying contemporary interpretation.

Every year, we carefully select a number of figurines to remove from production for at least five years. They are then given an honored spot in the legendary Grand Sample Cabinet in the historic area inside our World of Wendt & Kühn in Grünhainichen.
