Since 1899, the Müller Company in Seiffen, Germany has been producing handcrafted wooden
collectibles, whose whimsical designs are recognized the world over. Once the holiday season rolls around, their figurines and candle holders appear on many a tabletop and mantel.
The smoking men figurines originated in the 19th century, shortly after the pastime of pipe-smoking made its way to the Ergebirge Mountains from England. Each little man has a compartment in back for the cone of incense—carefully light it and the smoke huffs and puffs a woodsy, scented smoke through an opening at the mouth. Charming candleholders, referred to as "Pyramids", use the heat of the flames to rotate a spinning top, bringing to life charming holiday scenes.
Made in: Seiffen, Germany
Made of: A mix of linden, mahogany, walnut, elm, and beech woods
Size: Pyramids are 10"L x 6"W x 12"H; Smoking Men are 5"L x 5"W x 8"H. Pyramid purchases include 1 box of unscented white candles (50 pieces each). Smoking Men purchases include 1 box of Fir-scented incense nuggets (24 pieces each).
Pyramids: Don't leave candles unattended and keep out of reach from children and pets. Never place the candles to close to each other and never on top of each other. If the flames are too large, trim the wick to a shorter length. Use a fireproof, flat surface away from potential drafts. Only for use with authentic pyramid candles; burn time for each candle is approximately 1–2 hours. Store the candles in a cool, dry place.
Place incense cone on metal plate inside of smoker base. Ignite the tip of the incense cone and allow it to start smoking. Replace the smoker top and allow the figurine to burn slowly on a fireproof, flat surface. The incense will burn for 15–20 minutes and the scent will last for hours. Do not leave the smoker unattended while it's burning. When you're ready to extinguish the smoke, place smoker cone in water. Store the incense in a dry place.
