Angel chimes also known as angel-abra are a form of Christmas decoration popular in Europe and North America. Apparently from the same origins as the Christmas pyramid, which functions on the same principle. They differ from these, primarily, in being mass-produced from metal and featuring bell-ringing angels, whereas Christmas pyramids are usually crafted from wood and don't necessarily have bells.
In 2007, a rare 1920’s metal Christmas angel chime tree topper was auctioned online through Ebay. Its box was labeled “electric chimes”.

Famous quotes containing the words chimes and/or angel:
“It was your severed image that grew sweeter,
That floated, wing-stiff, focused in the sun
Along uncertainty and gales of shame
Blown out before I slept. Now you are one
I dare not think alive: only a name
That chimes occasionally, as a belief
Long since embedded in the static past.”
—Philip Larkin (19221986)
“The sun in this month
begets a headache
like an angel slapping you in the face.”
—Anne Sexton (19281974)
