Description

You'll love this simple yet elegant, handmade Richard Glaesser Simple One-Tier Nativity Pyramid year-round, and especially at Christmas. This elegant pyramid is hand-carved from natural wood and made in the Erzgebirge region of Germany. The nativity scene features the holy family at the birth of Christ with a Christmas tree in the center. Each figure is hand-carved and enameled.

The heat generated by four candles (not included) moves the blades and spins the pyramid. This wonderful pyramid is sure to become a treasured heirloom in your family. Candles not included. Dimensions: 5.25 diam. x 8.5H inches.

The Christmas pyramid is a unique article that originated in the Erzgebirge region of Germany around 300 years ago. It was very simple - often sticks tied together at the top and decorated with bright materials. To maintain an upright position, the sticks had to be tied in such way that the base was broader than the top; hence, the pyramid shape, and the reason for their name.

Over time, flat, round platforms were developed and a center shaft was put through the platforms; thus, the platforms rotate. Ultimately, wings or blades were attached at the top and candles were fitted to various parts of the pyramid. When the candles are lit on today's Christmas pyramids, their heat moves the wing blades and propels the whole structure.

The Richard Glaesser Company is located in Seiffen, in the heart of the Erzgebirge in the former East Germany. This picturesque area is known for its handmade wooden toys, pyramids, and other collectibles. Richard Glaesser founded the company in 1932. Although he passed away in 1987, the tone and standards for quality that he set continue today.

Founded in 1949, the Taron Company has been in business for more than 50 years. The company's focus has always remained the same: to bring unique, high-quality collectible giftware, handicrafts, and toys to the U.S. marketplace.
