High-quality Schwibbögen from the heart of the Erzgebirge: A mirror of the Erzgebirge culture
The mechanically movable Schwibbögen are a true spectacle. They give insights into the arduous life of the miners, but also into the world of wooden toy makers from the region. Among the highlights are the Schwibbögen "Agricola", "Cynsifen" and "Dresden Striezelmarkt".
Classic Schwibbögen: Tradition meets modernity
In addition to the limited editions, the managing director Jenny Mattheß, granddaughter of the late folk artist, together with her qualified staff also manufactures smaller, classic Schwibbögen. Although not mechanically moved,they are just as lovingly designed and reflect the passion of the founding generation.
Originality and attention to detail: A trademark of the manufactory
Electrically illuminated and thought out to the smallest detail, the Schwibbögen present themselves in various motifs. Since its inception in 1990, the "Seiffener Schwibbogen" by Max Schanz is an important part of the portfolio. Here dominates the motif of the snowy Seiffen church, surrounded by idyllic miners' houses.
Awards and prizes: Recognition for outstanding craftsmanship
The family business has been honored for its excellent work many times, including with the award "Tradition & Form" from the Association of Erzgebirge craftsmen and toy manufacturers as well as the "Simply Ingenious" Prize of the MDR. Another highlight is the special prize for the life's work of the founder.
Conclusion: A visit is worthwhile for lovers of Erzgebirge crafts
The manufactory Klaus Kolbe in Seiffen is a must for all, who are interested in Erzgebirge crafts. The high quality and attention to detail make the Schwibbögen a perfect addition to any Christmas decoration and a valued collector's item far beyond the borders of the Erzgebirge.
