Original Bergischer Engel: The Search via Newspaper Article
30. January 2019
How do you find information about a manufactory that produced their last Fairy Tale Wood Picture more than 50 years ago? This is what I tried: Writing to a local newspaper and asking them to print an article with photos. And they did! Original Bergischer Engel was produced in Solingen-Wald, and that is where the founder still lived! Johanna Gruner-Witkop contacted me after she had read the newspaper and seen her vintage art on the photos. She invited me to Solingen-Wald and later told me so much about “Original Bergischer Engel” and about her life. Back at the beginning, she had been only 17. In 2018 she celebrated her 90th birthday.
