Throwback Thursday - Christmas Angel Chimes

Do you remember Christmas angel chimes? These little chime sets were brass. They had lots of little pieces that needed to be put together each year. (I loved doing this as a little girl!) Once you put the set together, the candles provided heat that caused the little angels to spin.   This was an annual part of Christmas during my childhood - I still have my angel chimes.   

I found a magazine advertisement for the chime sets, although I recall them being sold at dimestores and local stores.  

I also found a video to share with you, showing the chimes in action (below).  Do you remember these?  I'd love to hear from you in the comments, below.

Yes! My mother had a set that had belonged to her mother. I found them online a few years ago and ordered sets for my sisters and parents. Still love lighting them up over the holidays and listening to the gentle chimes.
