Several different German firms manufactured chimes during the 32 years, this version made as a tree topper combination.
Trees were all lit by candle so natural to have a tree topper with candles and a
musical chime notes as a bonus.
These six angels did not move. The turbine, included four hanging bell clappers
along with the 3 standard German Bells
gave the standard 12 bell tinkles per
revolution, compared to today’s six.
This unit, as did all German, run with a larger turbine and only 3 Candles.
