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.
