2017 Candle Holder set, Michael and Raphael, palladium plated
Item Number10007292The design behind this years Christmas Collectibles came from the desginer Alfredo Haberlis childhoold Christmas traditions.
When I was a child a Christmas tradition was for my family to get together at our grandparents hotel. We had a fantastic time and coming from a Swiss-German family we always had a real fir tree although sometimes it felt a little strange in Argentina in the middle of summer without snow. We had many other traditions such as singing playing instruments decorating the tree and giving presents. I thought about which object represents Christmas for me: a star a glass bauble the three kings Santa Clause and an angel.
I looked at the concept and function of the collectible and I decided to focus on the angel. I created different sizes shapes and I made some decorative holes symbolizing snowflakes or starry skies. If you look carefully the angels are part of the Alfredo Collection. They have a twist which will hopefully make you smile and warm your heart. If this is your reaction then I have succeeded with its purpose! - Alfredo Haberli
