German Nutcracker : Large Santa, Gold & Natural Finish
Santa Claus wasn't always the portly guy we're so familiar with today. Maybe because in Northern Europe he walked or rode a donkey on occasion –– none of this flying reindeer business. This nutcracker hearkens back to those more svelte years. Elegantly dressed in warm golds and natural finish woods with a rich brown fabric cap and sack. Golden tree, golden toys, golden bell at the tip of his cap. 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 hand painted woods. Santa's beard and hair are lush faux fur. About 15 3/4" tall x 5 1/2" wide x 5" deep. Handmade in Germany.
