German Nutcracker : Large Father Frost
Father Frost rules over the wintry tundra. Beautiful glazed and hand painted wood, with silvery staff in one hand, Matryoshka nesting doll in the other. Handmade by artisans at 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 glazed and hand painted woods. The king's beard and white hair are lush faux fur, as are the trim of his coat and hat. Breathtaking colors. About 15" tall x 6" wide x 5 3/4" deep. Handmade in Germany.
