German Christmas Pyramid: Tall Starry Nativity
One of Germany's most enchanting Christmas traditions is the candle-lit pyramid, which families often place in the front window of their homes for passersby to see. This pyramid is made by the artisans of the Richard Glaesser Company in Seiffen in the heart of Germany's Erzgebirge Mountains. Tall, with two tiers: the Holy Family and a shepherd with his animals on the first level, angelic musicians above. Stars are painted on the main support.
Handmade in Germany by artisans of the Erzgebirge Mountains. This Christmas pyramid stands about 11" tall x 7 1/2" wide x 7 1/2" deep. All elements are hand turned, hand carved, hand painted (though this pyramid features mostly natural-finish woods). The rising heat from the burning candles causes the propellor to rotate, resulting in the magical motion. We'll include a box of genuine pyramid candles from Germany, and we sell the candles year-round so you always know where to find them! Do not burn unattended; light candles only in a draft-free location.
