This adorable candle holder was made in East Germany by Expertic, an Erzgebirge cooperative, trade association, that sold Christmas and holiday items to the West in the years from 1968 to 1989. Most trade and export to the West was prohibited, but the Expertic pieces were not! They are very collectible German pieces from the Erzgebirge region. The label is no longer used, so if it has the Expertic label, it came from East Germany during that specified time. (Actually says GDR for German Democratic Republic, which is East Germany). This lovely piece was sold at Marshall Fields in the 1970's or 1980's, for $16.00. It is beautifully made, and is a revolving candle holder. When the tiny candles are lit, the heat causes the fans to rotate, turning the little wooden nativity. The piece is in excellent condition, with no damage, burns or missing pieces. They candles have been burned just a little bit! The Erzgebirge area of Germany has been home for generations to artisans who have made (and are still making) some of the most beautiful and charming Christmas decorations, toys and candy containers. The original box has the Marshall Fields price tag. The box is hand made and staple constructed. The box is in great condition, with just a bit of clear tape and tape scars.
