Schwibbogen (German Candle Arhes)
The German Schwibbogen (candle arch) derives its name from a type of arch constructed in Gothic times when an arch between two walls was called “Schwebebogen”, or “floating arch”. The talented artisans of the Erzgebirge region of Germany have been making these delightful candle arches for more than 250 years. Now, of course, in addition to the candle arches that use actual candles, there is also a nice selection of electrical candle arches. When you see a candle arch lighted in the evening, you will begin to appreciate the fine craftsmanship and the wonder of these masterpieces. All our candle arches are stamped by the maker and are authentic Ergebirge products. Whether painted or natural, they are all gorgeous. A word to the wise: Don’t be fooled by the mass produced copies one often sees in chain stores throughout the country.....only true Erzgebirge products are sold here and are worthy of the word “heirloom” when you consider these pieces as precious gifts or the start of a family tradition. Enjoy!
