Winter Kinder - Girl with Sleigh

Wendt and Kühn Winter Children/Winter Kinder - Girl with Sleigh 

2-1/2" tall

The Girl with Sleigh and Boy with Tree were first created by Olly Wendt over 40 years ago based on her twins Hans and Sigrid and were a special, personal gift for family and friends.

Now, for the first time and new for 2014, they are available to collectors.

The Winter Girl and Boy (sold separately) - the Winter Kinder - include a bit of Erzgebirge history:  "The Winter Kinder are setting out to spread a touch of wintery spirit among a large audience. Bundled up in their warm clothes and furnished with holiday accessories, these figurines will definitely make unusual accent pieces." On the Girl's sled, "Next to the star, bread and wine sits a splinter box. In the past the people of the Erzgebirge mountains used such boxes to store small items of value." - Wendt and Kühn

Simply said, they belong together! You can find the Winter Kinder Boy with Tree here
