Erzgebirge Miner & Angel
Natural Candle Holders

Owing to the mining process of the Erzgegirge region of Germany, miners have stayed as the focus in the production of wood turned figures until this present day. With the advent of Stearin candles coming around 1850, the miner grew in importance as a light-bearing figure. To the miner, burning light was not just a necessary prerequisite to work in the dark, it's warm shine meant a symbol of life. The angel is traditionally shown alongside the miner from the Erzgebirge or Ore Mountains. The angel accompanying him goes back to the Nürnberg Christmas tree fairies and the dolls made by the wood turners. Made in Germany by Kleinkunst as dem Erzgebirge Müller GmbH 10-5/8 inches - 27,0 cm
