The angelglass is a kind of playing candlestick that has become a standard feature in many Swedish homes at Christmas time. The heat from the burning candles rises and makes a turbine spin, causing the three angels to fly around, around, around and "strike" the bells. This angel game, the Swedish original, is a classic angel game from Dala Industrier. The angel game is made of good quality brass-plated steel sheet.
The earliest known patent for an angel game belonged to the German toy company Adrian & Stock. Before the Second World War, most angel games were made in Germany. After the war, the Swedish brass angel games became popular in both Europe and America. The Swedish angel games had a simpler and more aesthetic design, just like the one you can buy here. Now more the market is dominated by cheap copies from China.
