King Melchior / Nativity Set / New 2024

King Melchior (the Kneeling King) 

2.5" tall

A very special design from Wendt and Kühn's grand design legacy returned to the collection in October 2021 - the nativity scene. Grete Wendt's design of 1910/11, before she even founded Wendt and Kühn, was way ahead of its time. Its straight lines and minimalist style are akin to the language of form we would have expected from the artists of the Bauhaus in 1919. Simple yet with a richness of detail the figures give this extraordinary group magnificent character and history.


In a Wendt and Kühn gift box.
