Dresden Advent Calendar

From Brück and Sohn (Printers in Meissen, Germany, 1793-2018) a charming Advent Calendar of Dresden, Germany,  depicting a Christmas Market in front of the Frauenkirche. Dresden was the home of the first German Christmas market in 1434.  Art by G. Hildebrandt.  This delightful advent calendar is 10.5" x 12.5".  

Brück and Sohn's first historical city advent calendar. The Dresden Neumarkt is in the forefront. The Frauenkirche was destroyed by bombs during World War II. Under the initiation and direction of Ludwig Güttler the Dresdner Frauenkirche was resurrected and became a symbol for worldwide peace and reconciliation.

After celebrating their anniversary in October 2018 of 225 years, the 7th generation, Annette and Helmut Brück, are now retired and have closed their doors. An era has come to an end.

The Brücks plan to explore the history of their company and offer a small museum and postcard archive which are preserved in Meissen and which is open to the public by appointment. 

My Growing Traditions has scavenged where we could and replenished our inventory in hopes of being able to make them available to you as long as possible.
