German Nutcracker: Large Bavarian, Painted
This Bavarian, with his Hoffbrau Haus beer stein in one hand and a turnip in the other, is handmade by artisans ofthe Christian Ulbricht Company; they've been making nutcrackers by hand in Germany's Erzgebirge Mountains, where wooden nutcrackers first originated, since 1928. He's wearing his traditional lederhosen and Tyrolean hat. Our colorful Bavarian is perfect from Oktoberfest to Christmas (and to be honest, he'd be welcome in any home all the year round).
This is a working nutcracker (the lever in back operates his jaws), made by hand of solid natural finish and hand painted woods. This Bavarian's beard and dark hair are lush faux fur. Nearly 16" tall to the top of his plumed cap, about 5" wide x if you extend his tankard completely round front (it's adjustable), he ends up being about 6" deep. Handmade in Germany.
