Wendt & Kühn Grünhainichen Angel - Angel with Two-piece Percussion, Sitting
This figure is a remarkable feat of handicraft. The attention to detail and the skill required to achieve that detail in such a tiny piece is amazing. The Angel sitting with a drum set is really something.
I grew up in a church where drums were considered "verboten" (forbidden!) so I really celebrate seeing an Angel playing the drum set!!!
Named for the town in Germany where these precious figures are made, the Grünhainichen Angels were first sketched and created in 1923 by founder Grete Wendt. Each Angel has exactly eleven white dots on their little green wings – their famous trademark the world over.
Made in Grünhainichen, Germany
Height of Figure - 6 cm or 2.5"
