This is how we say hello in the Erzgebirge – and this is how we would like to welcome you in our small manufacture of wooden miniatures. Browse through our unique range of goods, take a look behind the scenes of our family workshop and dive into our world between design and tradition.
The Erzgebirge pyramids create a cozy atmosphere with their warm candle light and steady movement. The traditional small figurines and portrayed scenes are fascinating to behold even today. Some of the pyramids have an innovative way of using tealights, making the ornaments both safe and highly decorative.
Christmas tree ornaments
Our Christmas decorations brighten up the lush green of the Christmas tree with their harmonious colours. Because of the broad selection of motifs, our ornaments have become sought-after collectors’ items. The ornaments are available as a selection but can also be ordered separately in a package of six pieces.
Our music boxes with their fine-tuned mechanism are available in two versions: as a wind-up music box or one that is played manually by turning a crank. Like with other mechanical toys, there can be some faint side noise caused by the mechanism – but that is also a part of the charm.
The candle arches are an essential part of the Erzgebirge folk art. In the past there used to be a massive diaphragm arch mounted over the mine entrance. The arch was called “Schwibbogen”, and our candle arches still carry that name, portraying traditional motifs and giving them a modern touch.
The jolly smoking men spread around the scent of Christmas from their pipes, adding on to the seasonal coziness. As an alternative for non-smokers we offer the smoking house whose chimney gives off cheerful puffs of smoke.
To express their passion for light, the mineworkers portrayed all kinds of imaginative shapes and forms in their candle holders. This evolved into a special branch of Erzgebirge folk art that we’ve developed further with modern design and
All of our congratulations boxes depict a little scene which almost seems alive with the amount of detail and cheerful colours. Made in the style of traditional match boxes, our boxes can be enjoyed as decorations or given as an alternative to a greeting card – there is room for a personal message on the backside.
Decorations and small gifts
Colourful, wooden and with a touch of spring – that is what these items are all about. The brightly coloured flowers and small figurines can be attached to flower bouquets or Easter surprises by a clip or thread but work equally well as table decorations or small presents throughout the year.
Several times a year we lock ourselves up in the workshop, blend colours and collect ideas – that`s the moment when not only our pyramids are spinning. The results are wonderful, new products which we want to share with you.
