German Nutcracker: Large Moon King
Here's a nutcracker of celestial status: It is the Moon King, whose dominion is the nighttime sky. Handmade by artisans at 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), made by hand of solid natural finish and glazed woods. The king's beard and white hair are lush faux fur. We love his pointy shoes! About 16" tall x 5" wide x 4" deep. Handmade in Germany.
