VINTAGE OR ANTIQUE CHRISTMAS PYRAMID

ERZGEBIRGE WOODEN CHRISTMAS PYRAMID

SNOW WHITE & 7 DWARFS

HAND CARVED IN WESTERN GERMANY

INCLUDES ORIGINAL BOX

This is a very old German Christmas pyramid from the old days. It was made in the Erzgebirge region of what was then known as East Germany (FRG). This is a beautiful pyramid that features wooden figures of Snow White, several small birds, and the Dwarfs. The hardwoods used in this piece are really lovely, with nice patina from age. The piece also features a carved Christmas tree and a deer on the back. The candle cups appear to be made of solid brass. Just a great, rare and unusual piece in near perfect condition. It measures about 12" tall and about 12" across the windmill blades. No missing pieces. Includes four red candles. Light them, and the heat rises and turns the pyramid.
