In the area around Seiffen there are hardly any records of Christmas pyramids being made before 1850.
Many of the pieces, consisting of three to seven levels, which make up the wonderful collection in the Seiffen Toy Museum, were all made at a later date.
Some of them were not made until the last century and even those still in family possession cannot be dated any earlier.
Each of them was initially unique and had been made in the toy maker's family to decorate his own home during the Advent period.
The Erzgebirge pyramids were not made on a commercial basis until later, in the first decade of the twentieth century.
