A scarce complete boxed Jingle Abra brass Christmas candle chimes set, made in Sweden in the 1940s. It's a fancier version of the classic Swedish angel chimes with both reindeer and angel charms. The heat from candle flames makes the stamped brass pieces spin or rotate. The chimes ring when the posts dangling from the moving charms hit them.
You can use the reindeer charms or the angels, both sets are included. There are two trumpeting angels at the base and an additional angel for the top. Or use the red enameled Merry Xmas star at the top instead. There are also optional Merry Xmas and Happy Birthday red stars for the center.
The chimes are bell shape rather than the typical round cups found on standard angel chimes and each has a little brass star at the top. The set is 100 percent complete including candles, although they are a little warped from age and storage. Even the original old and yellowed paper insert describing the Swedish chimes Christmas tradition is present.
The Merry Xmas center star is missing the prongs at the top so I attached it with a piece of doubled tape at the back. The brass pieces have lots of age patina but you can polish them to a high shine if desired. There is old wax in the candle cups. The box has some age discoloration and light storage wear as shown but it's intact with no splits or tears.
