These "Anglaspel" or Angel Carillon vintage Swedish brass candle chimes with trumpeting angels were typically used at Christmas time. The heat from the candle flames makes the brass pieces spin or rotate. The chimes ring when the posts dangling from the moving charms hit them.

The style is a little different from most Swedish angel chimes with a 2-part center post. The brass pieces are quite a bit heavier than later chimes sets. I think this set dates to the 1940s. When put together, the chimes decoration is 12 inches high. It is complete in the original box and comes with four unused red candles. The brass pieces have patina from age and use, easily polished away if desired. The original box is intact and in good condition, marked Made In Sweden. "Rules For Mounting" (assembly instructions translated from Swedish) are printed inside the box lid.
