Vtg Colorful German Erzgebirge EXPERTIC Wood Nativity Candle Pyramid, prob 1980s:
$75

This is a Colorful Charming Vintage German Erzgebirge Painted Wood NATIVITY Candle Pyramid/Rotating Carousel,made in the former East Germany (GDR/DDR), probably in the 1980s,
labeled on the underside `Erzgebirge, Made in German Democratic Republic, expertic’
`Expertic' was the exporting company of the former East Germany (GDR), since the export of these folk art christmas products to the West, brought in much needed hard currency at the time. That export was controlled by `Expertic'.
With ORIGINAL BOX labeled `expertic, ORIGINAL ERZGEBIRGE, 01601, Made in German Democratic Republic’.

The fan blades on tope turn a revolving platform below when the candles are lit.
The nine fan blades revolve above a blue arch decorated with gold stars, above wood shavings with Mary and Joseph flanking Baby Jesus on one side, and a seated angel holding the music for `Stille Nacht’ on the other side, revolving around on a green revolving platform are two shepherds and eight sheep, fitted with four brass candle holders.
Very good condition with minor wear and paint losses.
Thebox and pyramid are labeled `expertic’, which was the exporting company of the former East Germany. But it probably was actually made by the company Richard Glasser of Seiffen.
Height: about 11 ¼ inches Width: about 7 inches Depth: about 6 inches

It’s spins beautifully when the candles are lit. The heat from the candles spins the blades and the revolving platform. Use regular pyramid candles (Pyramiden Kerzen).
The Erzgebirge region in Germany (the name means `Ore Mountains' and is situated southwest of Dresden in the former East Germany) is famous for its century-old tradition of producing wonderfully painted wooden folk art decorations, such as these magical pyramids.
