German Christmas Pyramid: Angel Bakery Tea Light
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 handmade by the artisans of the Richard Glaesser Company in Seiffen in the heart of Germany's Erzgebirge Mountains. Three busy angels spin round through the building while one sits outside the bakery, decorating gingerbread. Gingerbread lies here and there, and there are three delicately carved trees, too. We love the starry details on the eaves of the bakery.
This Christmas pyramid stands about 11" tall x 9" wide x 7 1/2" deep. All elements are hand turned, hand carved, hand painted. Solid wood with four metal tea light holders and a turning propeller. The rising heat from the burning candles causes the propellor to rotate, resulting in the magical motion. Four tea lights included; we sell the tea lights you'll need, too, but you can use any standard tea lights for this pyramid. Do not burn unattended; light candles only in a draft-free location.
