German Nutcracker : Glazed Santa with Tree
A lovely Santa in warm glazed woods (rather than painted); he's holding a little fir tree and a sack. We love his unusual conical hat! Handmade by 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.
This is a working nutcracker (the lever in back operates his jaws), made by hand of solid natural finish, glazed, and hand painted woods. His beard and white hair are lush faux fur and his cap and boots are lined with faux fur, too. Just about 12" tall. Handmade in Germany.
