German Nutcracker: Bavarian with Fabric Hat
This Bavarian guy is wearing one of the traditional conical hats we see at Oktoberfest each year; the main difference is the hat, in this case, is made of fabric, not wood, just like one of the actual hats. Handmade of glazed and painted woods; he holds a beer stein in one hand and a radish in the other. His beard and hair are lush faux fur. 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). He stands 11" tall x 4" wide x 4" deep. Handmade in Germany.
