German Nutcracker: Large Lebkuchen King
Imagine being the King of Lebkuchen! Why, you'd be dining on royal gingerbread every night, if you wished. This Gingerbread King is much less interested in military matters than in the workings of His Majesty's Royal Bakery. Made by hand of solid natural finish woods in beautiful rich, warm tones with golden tasseled shoulders and golden accents on his uniform, plus a golden scepter bedecked with lebkuchen. Faux fur and beard, deep brown eyes.
Our gingerbread king is 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). Stands almost 15" tall x 6" wide x 5 1/2" deep. Handmade in Germany.
