Vintage German 3-Tier Christmas Wooden Nativity Pyramid

For your consideration is a wooden Christmas nativity pyramid, purchased at a local estate. The pyramid has three tiers. Mary, Joseph, baby Jesus in the manger, and the 3 wise men and camel are on the first bottom tier. The second tier has shepherds and sheep, and the top third tier has three angels. Candles (not included) are placed in the brass cups around the bottom tier, and the heat from the flame turns the paddles on the top. Two of the brass cups are missing the brass center that the candle base goes in. Candles fit in these just the same as all of the other holders, and one would not know that the very center of the brass cup would be missing once all of the candles are in the cups. One cup has a little tarnishing that I assume would come off with a little brass cleaner. All the figures are crafted in different shades of wood for a very natural look. They are not brightly painted like some other pyramids. T is a little bit of paint on some to bring out the features. It is a little dusty, but is just beautiful. T is a sticker on the bottom confirming that it is authentic and from Germany. This would be a great piece to add to your Christmas decor. My kids are begging me to keep it, but it does not go with the other nativities that I have. Please look at all the pictures and e-mail me if you have any questions.
