Seiffen Advent Calendar

From Brück and Sohn (Printers in Meissen, Germany, 1793-2018) a charming Advent Calendar of Seiffen, Germany, depicting the Christmas Market including a Nutcracker and Pyramid.  Art by G. Hildebrandt. This delightful advent calendar is 10" x 15".  

Seiffen, in the Ore Mountains, is known for its wooden folk art and is often referred to as a toy village and as Germany's Christmas village. In 1953, the Erzgebirge Toy Museum of Seiffen opened its doors and vividly illustrates the development of Erzgebirge wooden toys from the mining roots of Seiffen to this day.

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.
