Graupner Design and old traditions in a unique union - Miniatures from Crottendorf in the Erzgebirge mountains

As a small craft workshop, it is our goal to offer a unique selection of wooden miniatures to discerning speciality stores wishing to give their customers the exceptional. Manufacturing the items in traditional Erzgebirge style, we bring together the old ways of the region lovingly nicknamed as “Christmas land” and contemporary design. The interplay of natural wood and bright, inviting colours is one of the key features of our miniatures. Colour design is carried out and new ideas are formed in close co-operation with local Erzgebirge designer Katrin Baumann. The manufacturers then make sure that the material gets the respect it deserves and that the finished products are flawless.
