Collector's (and the first time Collector) will love this large, authentic handcrafted and hand painted Steinbach Nutcracker. The Fisherman is standing with his fishing pole in one hand and his catch in the other! Height: 15". This is one cute Nutcracker!
Steinbach Nutcrackers are the most cherished in the world and are handed down generation after generation. The Steinbach family started making Nutcrackers in 1832, by purchasing a timber yard and operating a wood sawmill, which ran initially by water power and then by steam power. To produce one Nutcracker can take up to 130 separate procedures. They began as functional items, but after a period of years, the Nutcrackers became objects of art in their humble homes and were used as decorative items. The Nutcracker also acted as a symbol of good luck.
$80 Cash only.
