Angel chimes – rotary tealight candle holders from Scandinavia

In our assortment, you will be able to find Christmas spinning angel chimes in a range of designs to spread light and warmth in your home.

How do Christmas rotary candle holders work?

A tea light angel chime is a candle holder with a small turbine at the top. When lighting the candle, the heat from the flame rises which triggers the rotation of the turbine as well as the figures attached to it. Therefore, it is the pressure from the hot air that causes the rotation of the angel chime candle holder. When the candle goes out, the angel chime will also stop moving.

Why are rotary candle holders called angel chimes?

Traditionally, angels were attached to the turbine of candle holder and would turn from the rising heat of the flame. When the angels began turning, they would strike a small bell which was also attached to the candle holder, creating a delightful sound.

Christmas candle angel chimes with different figures

Although the original Swedish angel chimes were decorated with angel figures, today there are many modern variants of angel chimes with a variety of different motifs including snowflakes and nativity scenes.

For Moomin lovers, the Swedish brand Pluto has a variety of Moomin family rotary candle holders in silver and gold coloured metal – perfect as a gift or a detail in the home.

The story of the angel chime

It is unclear where exactly the first angel chime came from, however the first patent belonged to a toy company in Germany at the beginning of the 20th century.
After World War II, Swedish angel chimes became increasingly popular in both Europe and North America. The Swedish angel chimes bought a simpler aesthetic and were made in brass.

Erik Boberg, who started manufacturing advent candles and angel chimes in Gävle in the mid-1940’s, is said to be the Swedish founder of the Scandinavian angel chime. Today, Christmas angel chimes are used in homes around the world to bring a feeling of festivity and warmth over the Christmas season.
