The motive of the miner is deeply connected with the Erzgebirge customs. In the 16th and 17th century, mining was still the main source of income for the people there. The wooden miners in the form of light figures, smoking men and nutcrackers are the images of the men who risked their lives in the mines day after day. Wearing the miner's uniform was not only a special honor, but also a duty for everyone in the mining profession. The uniform evolved from the professional clothing that originally had a protective function only. In the Erzgebirge the historical costume is still very much alive today. Together with the existing mining monuments it reminds us that once the miners determined the image of our homeland and that much around us owes its existence to their work. 

Smoker were mentioned for the first time around 1830. The production of smokers and their use are today a firm component of the folk art and the customs of the Christmas season in the Erzgebirge. For this purpose, a lighted incense candle is placed on the lower part of the wooden figure, which is divided into two parts. The upper part is hollowed out and is put on the first part. The smoking candle burns inside the usually turned smoking man, the smoke rises and comes out of the mouth hole.

Cone size: regular sized cones (we recommend cones from Knox)

  • Warning: NEVER leave lit Incense unattended.
  • Decoration only. Not a Toy.
