German Christmas Pyramid: Adventshaus with Santa & Angels
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 two-story pyramid is of the Adventshaus style. These house-shaped pyramids date back to at least the 1950s and the Expertic workshops of the GDR.
This contemporary Adventshaus pyramid is made by the artisans of the Richard Glaesser Company in Seiffen in the heart of Germany's Erzgebirge Mountains. On the lower spinning level are children and toys and Santa Claus himself along with trees and a sled. On the upper spinning level, four musician angels (one of them has sheet music for the beloved German carol, "Stille Nacht.")
Handmade in Germany by artisans of the Erzgebirge Mountains. This beautiful Christmas pyramid stands about 14 1/2" tall x 8 1/2" wide x 7" deep. All elements are hand turned, hand carved, hand painted. Solid wood with four metal candle holders and a turning propeller. The rising heat from the burning candles causes the propellor to rotate, resulting in the magical motion. We'll include a box of authentic German pyramid candles. Do not burn unattended; light candles only in a draft-free location.
