German Christmas Pyramid: Santa with Toys
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. Santa Claus and enough toys for a whole big family of kids revolve around a lovely handcarved tree. Stars are painted on the main support, which itself is painted a lovely shade of green.
This pyramid is handmade by the artisans of the Richard Glaesser Company in Seiffen in the heart of Germany's Erzgebirge Mountains. Stands about 11" tall x 7" wide x 6" deep. All elements are hand turned, hand carved, hand painted. The rising heat from the burning candles causes the propellor to rotate, resulting in the magical motion. We'll include a box of 50 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.
