Tree ornaments angel
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.
Erzgebirge folk art. Seiffen
The fact that a famous wood art developed in the originally densely forested Erzgebirge mountains cannot be explained by the availability of the material alone. As a branch of industry, handicrafts gained all the more importance as the local mining industry rapidly lost resources and profitability. The Erzgebirge folk art slipped into this gap, which the mining industry - no less than Christmas - still shaped with numerous motifs. A center of wood art developed around Seiffen, where one of the first specialized trade schools was founded in 1853 to promote handicrafts. In the so-called Spielzeugwinkel make to this day small and large craft enterprises the classics of Erzgebirge folk art: from hoop animal and smoking man over miner figure and nutcracker to Schwibbogen and wing pyramid.
This product is an example of genuine handicraft; therefore, minor deviations in size and colour may occur.
