About MERTENS-KUNST

Mertens-Kunst was the most successful manufacturer of German Wall Figures. Ute Mertens (*1937+1996), the daughter of Alfred Mertens, created many of the motives from late 1960s to the 1990s. Ute Mertens’ brother led the manufactury after her father‘s death. At the end of the last century, less and less of the typical Mertens Kunst items were produced, but you will still find some familiar items and the Mertens name on the website of bino.de.
