Flower Child for 2022 - the Girl with Iris

Posted on March 17, 2022 | 0 Comments

The Girl with Iris, the Flower Child for 2022 is now available.      

Almost in awe, she holds the large flower in her small hands. She seems to know just how sophisticated Mother Nature was when she fashioned it. And it requires just as much mastery from the craftsmen and women at Wendt & Kuhn as they recreate this delicate bloom in wood - with loving attention to detail and perfect craftmanship.

Iris pseudacorus, the yellow flagyellow iris, or water flag, is a species of flowering plant in the family iridaceae. It is native to Europe, western Asia and northwest Africa. Its specific epithet pseudacorus means "false acorus", referring to the similarity of its leaves to those of Acorus calamus (sweet flag), as they have a prominently veined mid-rib and sword-like shape. However, the two plants are not closely related. The flower is commonly attributed with the fleur-de-lis. - Wikipedia  

She is most exquisite.

Wendt and Kühn Angel Musician with Bass Flute - New for 2021

Posted on April 16, 2021 | 0 Comments

Wendt and Kühn Angel Musician with Bass Flute - New for 2021

     

"The bass flute is a member of the flute family. It is in the key of C, pitched one octave below the concert flute. Despite its name, its playing range makes it the tenor member of the flute family. Because of the length of its tube (approximately 146 cm (57 in)), it is usually made with a J-shaped head joint, which brings the embouchure hole within reach of the player. It is usually only used in flute choirs, as it is easily drowned out by other instruments of comparable register, such as the clarinet."  Wikipedia

2-1/2" tall

A delightful addition to your collection.

Wendt and Kühn Gold Edition #13 - the Dreamer with Butterfly / New for 2020

Posted on May 20, 2020 | 0 Comments

The 2020 Wendt and Kühn Gold Edition is #13 - the Dreamer with Golden Butterfly.     

Available in the Limited Edition (shown above) and with simply the "golden" butterfly:     

The Dreamer is very special, with 24-karat Gold-plated butterfly (and for the Limited Edition 24-karat Gold-plated butterfly and base in a splinter box). As Wendt and Kuehn explains: "No-one has expressed the power of positivity more fittingly than that well-known fan of Wendt and Kuehn figurines, the famous Walt Disney himself: 'All our dreams can come true, if we have the courage to pursue them.' And this year's Gold Edition... the Dreamer is truly a perfect dream. When we created the 'Angel with Golden Butterfly' a year ago, little could we have known how symbolic its meaning would be for the times we find ourselves in today. A wonderful gift for small people with big dreams and for grown-ups...." who simply stated, cherish the ability to dream.

Both are available now and you can find them here.

Enjoy!
