Tea Lights

Tea lights add a touch of coziness and warmth to any space. But instead of having a standard old tea light propped out on the table or counter, our collection of German tea light holders will give you a decorative insert to place on display safely while adding a touch of character to your home. Our tea light holders are authentically handcrafted in Germany and come in a range of themes – Birds & Flowers, Ginger Cottage with Trees, Angel Pyramids, Snowman Holders, and more.


Whether your family heritage is rooted in Germany or if you’re simply a fan of the culture and their renowned hand-made carvings, our miniature matchboxes will let you show off your affinity with creative figures and carvings. Made in Seiffen since the 1920s, these matchboxes depict a variety of traditional scenes from Germany with quirky figurines and furnishings, and they’re still handmade from the same place today. Choose from a Clockmaker’s Workshop, Chalet, German Bakery, Flower Market, Apple Harvest, Erzgebirge Parlour, plus many more.


Candles create a soothing, relaxing, and welcoming ambience. And for centuries, they’ve been used to warm and illuminate the home. To keep the winter chill at bay, add some flicker of warmth to your space. Whether you need to restock on Advent candles, add a special holder to your kitchen table, or purchase candlesticks for your German ornaments and pyramid, you can find it all offered in our store.

When you want to cozy up your home or just make it feel more inviting, Frankenmuth Clock Company has you covered with all sorts of different quirky and unique handmade items from Germany. Browse online today to place your order.
