Christmas Shopping Memories - 2-Tier Christmas Pyramid

$130.00

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 Lemax characters showing the hustle and bustle of the holiday season! 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 6 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 3D printed pieces and hand cut wood and is fourth in our series of 2 TIER PYRAMIDS. Characters turn on the bottom tier inside of a pillared hexagon and spin beneath the propeller on the second tier. One of the amazing things about the 2 tier pyramids is the way the light plays differently on the tiers and characters as the candles burn down!

This unique pyramid includes 4 Lemax characters on the bottom tier, reminding us of the busy, yet memorable, hustle and bustle of the holiday season. There are another 4 Lemax characters that will remind you of those holiday season, including a mailbox for letters to Santa, a Christmas tree decorated with presents placed near it, a snowman interacting with woodland creatures, and the man of the hour, Santa! The blades are removed for shipping and are easily assembled once the pyramid has reached its destination. The propeller includes blades that should be set to a 30-degree angle for maximum performance. 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.
