Wooden Alpine Nativity CarouselDecorate your home and fascinate children and adults alike with this Alpine Nativity Carousel also called a German or candle pyramid. This carousel is made of wood and features figures from the nativity of Jesus. It has a fan at the top which is moved by the heat of the 4 inch red candles found on the four corners of the carousel. This in turn rotates the nativity figures found in the center of the house. The carousel is made of wood with metal candle holders and measures 9-1/2 inches wide and 12 inches tall.
The design or idea for the candle carousel came from Germany and is based on the invention of the windmill. Each carousel ususlly has a theme and this one features the nativity. Similar to a cuckoo clock, there is an opening at the top of the stable where the figure of an angel blowing a horn is visible. The angel is found on both sides of the stable so the design is the same from either side. Each blade of the fan is adorned with a simple snowflake which adds additional interest to the carousel. You simply light the candles and soon the blades start moving and the figures inside start rotating. To children it will almost seem like magic. The carousel will be a delightful and fascinating decoration to display in your home during the holiday season. Four candles are included with the carousel. Packs of 12 replacement candles are available, item N11787. Add to order below.
