Before there were Christmas Trees, there were Christmas Pyramids
In the Erzgebirge region of Germany there are many master wood workers. These men and women hand make thousands of different wood pieces every year. None may require as much attention to detail and skill as the Christmas Pyramids. Christmas Pyramids were the original Christmas Tree.
1 Tier, 2 Tier, 3 Tier, 4.
Each German Christmas Pyramid has its own size. These sizes are categorized by tiers. 1 Tier Christmas Pyramids are 1 level tall. 2 Tiers, have 2 levels and on and on. Each level has a unique scene taking place, often starting out on Tier 1 (the bottom shelf of the Christmas Pyramid) where the nativity scene is most commonly placed. Usually a pine cone or star dons the top of the Pyramid.
The Power of a Candle
Lighting our specially designed candles is the best way to keep your German Christmas Pyramid spinning like it should be. The beautiful warm glow of candle light provides collectors with a feeling of nostalgia.
Revel in our own Good Fortune
How fortunate we are each year to be able to sit indoors and warm ourselves by a fire, when the winter elements change the world around us into a cold and snowy place. These German Christmas Pyramids, powered by a small candle, serve as a beautiful and constant reminder of the warmth and good fortune we are afforded each winter. Prost!
