A Christmas Carol - 1-Tier Christmas Pyramid

$135.00

This handcrafted and hand-painted Christmas Pyramid is a unique, one-of-a-kind addition to your holiday décor! This simple, stick candle-powered pyramid spins slowly, highlighting the hand-painted 3D printed characters that are designed and painted to resemble the ghosts of the past, the present, and the future from the holiday classic The Christmas Carol. This Christmas Pyramid, or Weihnachtspyramide, is a German tradition that originally hung from the ceiling of families’ houses. These Christmas structures were popular in the mining towns of the Ore Mountains and have been said to be the predecessor to the Christmas tree. The name “Christmas Pyramid” came about in the end of the 18th century when pictures of pyramids from Egypt made it back to Germany. Over the years they have become a representation of old-world nostalgia and ingenuity!

When you place 4 lit candles in the holders on the base of the pyramid, the rising heat will cause the propeller to spin, making the display turn! The frame is made of hand cut wood along with a metal post as the center piece. This one-of-a-kind pyramid includes EIGHT hand-painted 3D printed characters, including a large representation of Scrooge facing his mortality with the ghost of Christmas future! Spinning as the blades turn are 3 main hand-painted scenarios with each ghost. In addition, there are ANOTHER FOUR hand painted items including a Christmas tree, a lamp post, a doorway, and big ben!! Place these characters and items wherever you would like on the pyramid to create YOUR perfect A Christmas Carol scene! The propeller includes blades that should be set to a 30-degree angle for maximum performance. The base stands at 11” tall and the blades have a total diameter of 11”. All pieces of this one-of-a-kind item were hand cut, handcrafted, and hand-painted! The blades are removed for shipping and are easily assembled once the pyramid has reached its destination. These handcrafted Pyramids are a classic decoration, bringing you back to Christmas’ past or reminding you of a simpler time. Make sure to get this one-of-a-kind treasure before it’s gone!

This item was handcrafted by my father, a retiree in Reno, NV, who honed his skills by creating amazing gifts for family and friends during the lockdowns of 2020. Having multiple health issues, paired with a global pandemic, kept him from spending his retirement as he planned. Never being one to sit still he spent his time in his small woodshop creating over 100 bird feeders, bird houses, whirligigs, and custom holiday items, all of which he gifted to family, friends, and neighbors. Seeing the happiness his work brought others, he worked with a local women's shelter and created over 30 handcrafted wood toys, which were donated to bring a smile to the children's faces who were staying. He is now sharing his talent and unique abilities with the world through Four Seasons Handmade Woodcrafts!

Remember:
- Never leave the room with the candles burning!
- Place the Christmas pyramid on a flat, solid surface.
- Make sure that there is nothing flammable in the vicinity of the Christmas pyramid. Do not place the pyramid near curtains, plants, or other flammable materials.
- Make sure that the Christmas pyramid is placed in an area free of drafts and breezes. The pyramid will perform best in an area where the candles do not flicker when lit.
- Make sure that the Christmas pyramid’s propeller has room to fully rotate and spin once candles are lit. If the propeller is blocked or stops rotating when candles are lit, it can catch fire.
- Please keep pets and children away from the pyramid.
- The cooler the room temperature the easier it will be for the propeller to spin.

The Christmas Pyramid is 11”x11”x11”
