Elegant Wendt and Kühn Ornaments for Your Christmas Tree
But, we admit to especially enjoying Wendt and Kühn's Angel Christmas ornaments. Tucking them into and on the tips of the branches of our tree allows us to enjoy these delicate and charming figures throughout the holiday season.
In 1987, the Berlin Wall had yet to come down - we had assumed that once in Germany we would find Wendt and
's folk art in a shop here and there, but only found one such shop in Berlin. Those tiny Angels remind us each year of that one time we visited Berlin, including East Berlin
(travelling through Check Point Charlie
). The Wendt and
Angel Ornaments from that trip are now an important part of our Christmas traditions. They are even more memorable by our having simply experienced East Berlin before the Berlin Wall
came down. Wendt and
's production continued during the communism period, handled through cooperatives who exported their art. We can only smile when we think of how they have flourished since the end of communism
With that perspective, now we look forward to seeing what Wendt and
Kühn introduces each new year.
Remember, all our Wendt and
Kühn Angels come tucked carefully into a Wendt and
Kühn box - nice for storing or presenting them as a gift.
