Popularised in 1816 in the book, ‘The Nutcracker and the King of Mice’ by E. T. A. Hoffmann the nutcracker has become an iconic traditional Christmas figure for your home. Carved, assembled and painted by hand, this nutcracker wears purple tunic and breechers.
The nutcracker hair and beards are made from rabbit skins, sourced from German farms and meeting European ethical & environmental standards. When used to crack nuts, the paint inside the nutcracker’s mouth may mark. This is not a toy.
