German Nutcracker: Erik the Red (Large Viking)
PRE-ORDER ITEM: Erik the Red was a Viking explorer and warrior who sailed west and discovered Greenland. He also happens to be pretty handy cracking nuts. 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 large working nutcracker (the lever in back operates his jaws), made by hand of solid natural finish and glazed woods. Traditional Viking garb from his helmet to his boots with a faux fur vest and, naturally, red beard and hair, also of faux fur. About 17" tall x 6" wide x 5 1/4" deep. Handmade in Germany.
Update August 10, 2023: Inventory Tracker states that we have 2 of these nutcrackers on hand, but this is a Pre-Order Item: our inventory is still on its way from Germany. Anticipated arrival date here at our shop in Lake Worth is late September. We will ship your order then.
