Wendt & Kühn or Wendt & Kuehn is a family owned business that was founded and still operated in the Erzgebirge mountain village of Grunhainichen, Germany. Wendt & Kuhn was founded by Margarete "Grete" Wendt in 1913, the company is a collection of trained artists that expertly carve and paint angels, figurines, music boxes and collectibles. Grete Wendt still remains a part of the company today as the artistic director, chief visionary and creative inspiration. It is Wendt & Kuhn's dedication to carve everything by hand using only the best indigenous wood, each tree being carefully cut, inspected and aged. Once carved it is on to the artist for hand painting. Each artist undergoes 2 years of training before obtaining the skill to paint these treasures. Please take a look at our selection we have to offer. We are one of a very few retailers that have the rights to sell Wendt & Kuhn in the United States. We hope you enjoy.
