look out for the old woman with the wart on her nose, what she’ll do to yer nobody knows...

So says e.e. cummings in his wonderful Halloween poem, "Hist Whist." Our witch nutcracker has a wart on her nose, too, and is green, and is perfect for Halloween (and for anyone who loves Halloween all year long). This is a substantially larger nutcracker (compared to most of our others) with added special details like a black cloth coat on top of a shimmery green frock, a pointy hat complete with spider, a broom made of reed, and a cauldron, too––hence the premium moniker. 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 her jaws), made by hand of solid painted and natural finish woods. Her silver hair is faux fur. Just about 20 1/2" tall x 6" wide x 6 3/4" deep. Handmade in Germany.
