    General Information

    Three angels for ...

    ... the Christmas tree. Reduced in form, clear in color, graceful in expression: it is precisely in their simplicity that the decorative richness of these three angels lies. In careful handwork they are turned from exclusively domestic woods - such as beech, maple, birch and spruce - sanded and finally also painted by hand. The trio comes from a Seiffener manufactory, in which their craftsman father the turning and turning, carving and grinding was laid as it were in the cradle: Wolfgang Werner was born into a long-established family of toy makers. While his older brother Christian has made a name for himself with his tire animals (also in Germany) and his younger brother Siegfried is closest to his father's legacy as a woodcarver, Wolfgang Werner's wooden toys, which are often mechanical and inspired by historical models, show that he originally had his sights set on a career in engineering. Now, however, he has become an experienced toy maker, who, in addition to his moving constructions - such as swing figures, pendulum riders and running animals - also takes traditional pendants like these out of the lathe. As tree ornaments they make as decorative as the decoration of the Christmas gift.

    Folk art from the Erzgebirge. Seiffen

    The fact that a famous wood art developed in the originally densely forested Erzgebirge is not only explained by the availability of the material. As a branch of industry, handicrafts became all the more important as the local mining industry rapidly lost resources and profitability. Folk art slipped into this gap, which mining - no less than Christmas - still shaped with numerous motifs. A center of wood art emerged around Seiffen, where one of the first specialized trade schools was founded in 1853 to promote handicrafts. In the so-called Toy Corner, small and large craft businesses still produce the classics of the folk art of the Erzgebirge: from hoop animals and smoking men to miner figures and nutcrackers to candle arches and wing pyramids.


    This product is an example of genuine handicraft; therefore, minor deviations in size and colour may occur.
