German Nutcracker: Small Bavarian with Pretzel & Beer
We've seen these conical hats here at Oktoberfest! This little guy holds a stein in one hand (it swivels out and in) and a very large pretzel in the other. He is ready for Oktoberfest or Christmas or any festive time of the year. His beard and dark 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), though you'd be hard pressed to find a nut small enough to fit in his jaws. He stands about 7" tall x 3" wide x 3 1/2" deep. Handmade in Germany.
