German Nutcracker: Vintage Small Officer
This smaller size nutcracker is a uniformed Prussian officer. He is a vintage German nutcracker–in fact, the "Expertic" label on the bottom reads Made in German Democratic Republic, so this piece is a souvenir of pre-unified Germany days. Hand carved from wood and painted by artisans in Germany's Erzgebirge Mountains, where wooden nutcrackers first originated. He comes in his original vintage box–the box is not necessarily pretty, but it is original, so we feel it may carry some importance. Our Small Prussian Officer Nutcracker stands about 10" tall, and is fearless against small nuts, like hazelnuts, almonds and pecans. Handmade in Germany.
