The Seiffener Lichterengel was a part of every early German Christmas celebration. These beautiful folk art angels were hand carved in the Seiffen area of the Erzgebirge, and the arms were formed of Brotteig (bread dough). They were usually painted white with simple handpainted decoration as mine, and there are more elaborate ones with metal arches or wings. They are all beautiful, but the simple ones are my favorite.
