|German Wood Nutcracker
A Christian Ulbricht Nutcracker Riding Soldier handcrafted in Germany.
Nutcrackers have a romantic history. Wood turning on lathes can be traced back to the small German mining town of Seiffen, in the mountains of the Erzgebirge not far from the Czechoslovakian border. Records document the Ulbricht family as wood turners since the early 1700’s. Their various nutcrackers are of the finest quality.
