German Halloween Pyramid: Haunted House
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, and now the artisans of the Erzgebirge have made this gently spooky pyramid for Halloween, with a friendly ghost, a spirited jack o'lantern, and a red-tinged propellor that extends up above the haunted house. A completely unexpected piece for your Halloween celebration.
This pyramid is handmade by artisans of the Christian Ulbricht Company; they've been making handmade wooden goods in Seiffen, in the heart of Germany's Erzgebirge Mountains, since 1928. About 8" tall x 7 1/4" wide x 7 3/4" 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. Includes two 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.
