Angel Holding Candles, White, Size 2

Height 6 cm / 2.25 inch

Background

Way back in 1912, even before she founded the company, Grete Wendt sketched a candle-bearing angel. This creation went on to become known as “Angel 28” based on its later catalog number. The aesthetic concept to this early design was to significantly shape the future company’s world of figurines. On 28 November 1914, Grete Wendt sent the angel to her brother Johannes, a soldier on the front during World War I, as a special treat for Christmas.

Angel Holding Candles, White, on a Star, Size 1

Height 5 cm / 2.0 inch

Although it stands only five centimeters high, the angel in the floor length robe looks completely serene. Its form is similar to the legendary Angel 28 designed by Grete Wendt even before the company was founded. What is different is the bright yellow star on which it stands. Based on an original design, this angel will only be made this year. The German words “Zum Weihnachtsfest 2019“ (For Christmas 2019) inscribed on the underside of the base emphasize the limited nature of this edition. An exceptional figurine that would make the perfect small yet precious gift for St. Nicholas Day on December 6.

This majestic figurine designed in 1964 was the jewel in the crown of Grete Wendt’s career as a designer. The angel in her sweeping dress holds with pride a gold-colored candlestick. An exceptional design that proved to be the final one from this great designer. Previously it had existed only as a sample, just like many of the designs preserved in our archives – but from May onwards, after more than 50 years, it will be joining our collection for the very first time.

Girl with Sleigh

Height 6 cm / 2.5 inch

You can almost hear the groaning of the little girl’s sleigh laden with all her goodies – in addition to the bright star, she’s pulling freshly baked bread, wine and even a splinter box, so popular throughout the Erzgebirge in former times for safekeeping small valuables. There’s a cold wind blowing outside, as evidenced by the girl’s warm scarf and thick wool socks. Her young companion is meanwhile keeping one hand warm in his pocket.

The delightful figurine composition was designed more than 40 years ago by Olly Wendt as a gift for friends and family. They were never produced in series and have been seen in 2014 for the very first time by the general public.

Boy with Tree

Boy with Tree

Conceived more than 40 years ago as a gift for family and friends by Olly Wendt, the creative designer at Grete Wendt’s side, the boy with tree first appeared to a large audience in autumn 2014 and has been spreading a touch of wintery spirit ever since. He has never been manufactured in volume before. Bundled up in his warm clothes and furnished with holiday accessories, this figurine will definitely make unusual accent pieces.

Erzgebirge Angel, Red
571/1-ROT

Erzgebirge Angel, Red

Height 40 cm / 15.75 inch
Width 17,5 cm / 7.0 inch, not available in the USA

Tradition has it that it was in 1922 that a man from neighboring Lippersdorf brought his old candle holder angel into the workshops of Wendt & Kühn to be repaired. Olly Sommer (later Wendt) liked this angel so much that she then interpreted the figurine in different colorways. We are reintroducing two of them this year. These slim angels are characterized by their traditional cylindrical form. This is atypical of the figurines of Wendt & Kühn whose turned components are usually cut diagonally to the axis and then reassembled at an angle. Just as important as their shape is their coloring – the graphic ornamentation and detailed patterns of leaves and flowers require huge talent and great skill.

A point of interest: During Advent these exceptional figurines still decorate the windows of Wendt & Kühn company buildings just as they did in the past, creating a festive atmosphere in both Grünhainichen and Seiffen.

The Erzgebirge Angel, a striking 40 centimeters high, has candle holders. These can hold both wax and LED candles. It is also available with electric lighting.

Four Arm Candelabra, with 4 Angels
6205/12

Four Arm Candelabra, with 4 Angels

Height 21 cm / 8.25 inch
Width 18,5 cm / 7.25 inch, not available in the USA

Four angels have taken their place in the bright light of the candles. Their heads adorned with crowns, their wings decorated with gold dots. Sitting close together they strike up heavenly melodies – two singers with song books accompanied by two flute players. Their dark red robes give them a festive look and provide an exciting contrast to the dark blue mound on which they are sitting. Twinkling stars and golden specks of light conjure up the night sky, which on this particular evening it lit with the most beautiful shower of stars.

This impressive reissue was modelled on candelabras designed pre-1937. Developing something new while at the same time preserving the unique character and timeless design of the original model presented both a challenge and an opportunity.

The candelabra, 18 centimeters in diameter and 21 centimeters high (without candles), has candle holders. These can hold both wax and LED candles.
