German Christmas Pyramid: Christmas Forest 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 made by the artisans of the Richard Glaesser Company in Seiffen in the heart of Germany's Erzgebirge Mountains. This Weihnachtswald (Christmas Forest) pyramid features a natural wood forest scene and Santa Claus with two kids, one on skis and one in a sled, rotating around the central tree.
Just about 11" tall x 7 1/2" wide x 7" 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. Includes four tea lights, and we sell the German tea lights year-round so you always know where to find them (though any standard tea light will do). Do not burn unattended; light candles only in a draft-free location.
