Albin Preissler

The family business “Seiffener Kunsthandwerk Albin Preißler” is the oldest manufacturer of Advent chandeliers in the toy village Seiffen in the Erzgebirge (Ore Mountains). Since 1919 the company has been producing beautiful handcrafted objects. Hugo Albin Preißler was a wood turner and master craftsman in the lamp factory Zimmermann & Co, in the first years of the 20th century. After the First World War he founded his own business. His son Albin Rudolf Preißler passed the master woodturner examination in 1949, took over the company in 1953 and expanded the range to include the popular Christmas articles. Today his daughter Steffi and her husband Hartmut Bauer run the workshop which cultivates the traditional Erzgebirge folk and wood art at a high level.

Albin Preissler Advent Candle Holders

The four-flame candle holders made of regional ash, beech, maple and elm wood are a beautiful addition or alternative to the Advent wreath. In Germany, one candle is lit every Sunday before Christmas in the four weeks leading to Christmas. Albin Preissler candle holders can also be used as a general, light and warmth radiating room decoration in the dark season. They are available in different colours. From a stable base four curved arms reach up and carry the four candles. Some Preißler candle holders can also be equipped with tea lights. The base in the center is decorated with a star or a wood chip tree. On some models, rejoicing angels sitting or standing on the platform additionally adorn the base. Pure and simple in natural wood tones, or very elegantly colored, like for example the advent candle holder in blue and white with sitting angels and a golden star, the candle holders are always a very special eyecatcher.
Sustainably cultivated material, bright colours and fine golden details, as well as the artful workmanship combine to create genuine Ore Mountain art of high quality. For smooth operation we recommend the high-quality candles and tea lights from JEKA.

Albin Preissler Christmas tree decorations

Another special feature that Albin Preissler has been manufacturing for around 100 years now are the Christmas tree ornaments. The beautiful Christmas stars are still 100% handmade by and then painted in brilliant colours. The 14 jagged stars made of solid beech wood measure 2.8x2.8x2.8 inches and can be attached to the tree with a silver thread. They are available in natural colours or in classic Christmas colours such as gold, silver, red and white glossy lacquer and set beautiful, light and festive accents in your Christmas tree.
