Christmas is Here! is most proud of this stellar line of hand-painted pewter from Bavaria in Germany.
In business since 1796, this rich tradition is kept alive by the family of Wilhelm Schweizer. Even today they base their designs on originals often hundreds of years old.
Each piece is truly a handmade item cast individually from molds carefully engraved in slate. They insure the quality and richness of even the tiniest detail.
Then each piece is painted in meticulous fashion by hand front and back.
Most people are attracted at first by the marvellous trees with their tiny "critters" -- birds, squirrels, birdhouses, etc. -- in the branches. There are spring, summer , autumn and winter tree versions.
We are thrilled to have this centuries-old company's work here at Christmas is Here!; we know you will love it, too!
