Laser cut wood carousel candle arch or Schwibbogen

A beautiful laser cut wooden Christmas candle arch or ‘Schwibbogen’ featuring a carousel and sideshows in a town setting. This unusual Christmas decoration can be displayed on your windowsill, mantelpiece or anywhere in your home.

The laser cut pieces are hand assembled and have battery LED lights added to produce a warm glow after dark. The batteries can be replaced (2 x CR2032). Wooden base may vary.

Originally a Schwibbogen was made of metal by ore miners in Germany in the 18th century. Over the years this tradition evolved into elaborate hand carved wooden versions lit with candles. However, today’s candle arches are mostly machine cut and use LED lights for safety.

Carousels began back in the 1100’s as a training ‘game’ for Arabian and Turkish horsemen being hand propelled by servants. The Crusaders brought the ‘game’ back to Europe and in the 18th century fancy versions of this began to appear in the private gardens of royalty. The carousel as we know it became possible when steam was used to power the carousels. Legend says there is a lead horse on every carousel - you should look for the biggest and most beautifully decorated horse.
