German Table Topper Cloth "wax Catcher" Schwibbogen Christmas Tree Erzgebirge:
Selling a preowned German Christmas table topper /"Wax Catcher" ("Wachsfänger")/ table cloth which is printed with traditional, old fashioned Erzgebirge Christmas motifs. These small, square cloths were traditionally used on a table under the Erzgebirge wood candle holders shaped like the angel and the miner to protect the table top from dripping candle wax. This cloth is NOS, new old stock, unused. The owner once worked in an East German textile factory where these cloths were produced and she "liberated" a large handful of them and then stored them in a trunk at home. We were fortunate to be able to buy the collection from her. THIS CLOTH IS REALLY PRETTY! The family is moving from Eastern Germany to Western Germany for economic opportunity, and selling all their old family things including their collection of these cheerful wax catcher cloths. Colors are bright and unfaded. Designs are crisp and striking. Size about 11" square. Condition is excellent and this cloth is ready to use. Pick up in Pompton Plains, NJ 07444 or FREE SHIPPING.
