Endearing and expressive turned-wood figures have made the Erzgebirge workshop Richard Glaesser GmbH world famous. Our experienced artisans produce Mary, Joseph and the Baby Jesus, sometimes painted and sometimes left in natural wood. In most cases these delicate figures are placed on a valuable pyramid. Collectors appreciate the figures as our signature and recognize our pyramids because of the typical Glaesser figures.
An extensive foundation of traditional Erzgebirge products was handed-down to us. You will find a wide variety of products available from Richard Glaesser GmbH. Smoking figures, music boxes, nutcrackers, arches, candle holders and much more is available for you in discriminating design and excellent quality.
Experience with wood working, influenced by the customs of miners and centuries-old knowledge about toy production are expressed in the work of our artisans. Continuing traditional techniques and protecting existing designs, coupled with passion and creativity, allow us to share our unique products and Erzgebirge holiday customs with you.
The company logo with the musical angel and the RG initials is meant to help you with your purchase and insure that your purchase is an original piece from the Erzgebirge.
A market-economy requires modern production facilities. Within the last years, we have moved our production to new and modern facilities without far-reaching effects for our employees.
After many years of extensive use, our main building had to be fundamentally repaired and renovated. The original production area was preserved and is now used as our demonstration workshop. Our large showroom displays the wide variety of products available from Richard Glaesser GmbH.
Approximately 80 employees in three production buildings are involved in the manufacture of our products.
Our production palette encompasses nearly 1000 items.
