German Premium Nutcracker: Halloween Witch with Broom & Cauldron
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. His silver hair is faux fur. Just about 20 1/2" tall x 6" wide x 6 3/4" deep. Handmade in Germany.
