German Nutcracker: Vintage Hussar
This is the classic nutcracker, at attention in his sharp red coat and tall hat, sword at his side. He is a vintage German nutcracker–in fact, the "Expertic" label on the bottom reads Made in German Democratic Republic, so this piece is a souvenir of pre-unified Germany days. Hand carved from wood and painted by artisans in Germany's Erzgebirge Mountains, where wooden nutcrackers first originated. He comes in his original vintage box–the box is not necessarily pretty, but it is original, so we feel it may carry some importance. Our Hussar Nutcracker stands tall at about 15", and is ready to crack most any nut that he encounters. Handmade in Germany.
