Pyramids
The Pyramid was developed in a region of Germany where many people earned their living working underground in iron mines. The candlelit pyramids mirrored the miners yearning for light, associating it both with clean air inside the mines and their safe return at the end of the day. The first candle-driven pyramids were offered for sale on the Dresden Market at the beginning of the 19th century.

How Does a pyramid work?
When the candles are lighted, the warm air rising up through the blades of the propeller makes the pyramid turn. The slowly revolving pyramid with its soft candlelight is a centerpiece for any seasonal decoration.
