Schwibbogen - Candle Arches

Illuminating the windows of numerous homes and businesses in the Erzgebirge at Christmastime, these arch-shaped candelabras have become an inseparable part of the holiday decorations of this Saxon region.
The first predecessor of Candle Arches (Schwibbogen) was manufactured in 1726 from wrought iron. The German name Schwibbogen refers to a type of arch constructed in Gothic times when an arch between two walls was called "Schwebebogen" (floating arch). The look goes back to a tradition of miners, who hung their burning pit lamps semi-circularly on the pit entry hole before they started their last shift before Christmas. The Candle Arch expresses the longing of light by the miners who did not see very much daylight during their workdays. "Gluck Auf!"
Many of these renowned Ore Mountain firms also make beautiful German Candle Pyramids which may be found here... Christmas Pyramids - Weihnachts Pyramiden Candle Arch Replacement Bulbs & Accessories
