The company was founded in 1932 by Richard Glaesser in Seiffen in the German Erzgebirge. The company manufactures traditional Christmas decorations from Seiffen, like Christmas pyramids, candle arches, smokers and nutcrackers. Richard Glaesser paid particular attention that his products are of the highest quality and that his figures have a friendly appearance. Figures from the Christmas story, fairy tales, as well as miners and angels from our mining traditions were used on Christmas pyramids and candle holders. Especially popular motifs are from the Christian Christmas story, from fairy tales and children's books, but also miners in our mining tradition. The Glaesser company is a significant of pyramid manufacturer. Particularly well known are the blue pyramids with gates of heaven, the advent houses or the six and eight sided terraced pyramids.
