German Nutcracker : Extra Large 28" Red & Gold King
Here's a jumbo beauty (don't let the picture fool you), and if you're looking for a real showstopper, look no further: This traditional German nutcracker is a royal king dressed in red, adorned in gold. He stands over 28" tall and weighs in at nearly 13 pounds of solid natural-finish and hand painted wood. Handmade by the the artisans of the Christian Ulbricht Company. They've been making nutcrackers by hand in Germany's Erzgebirge Mountains, where wooden nutcrackers first originated, since 1928.
Each part of this royal king is solid wood, including his amazing crown. His distinguished salt & pepper hair and beard are lush faux fur, and the epaulets of his royal uniform are trimmed in metallic golden tassels. This is a working nutcracker (the lever in back operates his jaws) and a piece worthy of heirloom status. Over 28" tall x 10" wide x 7" deep in a satin finish. Handmade in Germany.

We've seen this gorgeous piece online from other retailers at prices as high as $1,799.... we think our price is a bit more fair for all parties involved (artisan, customer, retailer): our price is $1,395 plus you get free shipping to your US address.
Please note: This nutcracker has a small bit of red paint showing through the blue paint at the bottom of his coat. It does not detract from his beauty, but we feel you should know this before purchasing him! To make up for this, we are offering this nutcracker at a $100 discount off the regular price.
