German Nutcracker: Royal Guard, Natural Finish
Another of the most iconic of nutcrackers, our Royal Guard is a bit different in that he made entirely of natural finish woods, rather than painted. 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). His beard and dark hair are lush faux fur. He stands about 13" tall to the top of his plumed hat x 4" wide x 3" deep. Perfect not just for Christmas, but for all the year long. Handmade in Germany.
