Originally, the nutcracker was purely used to crack nuts; however, today it is a wonderful collector's item. The Ore Mountain region of Germany is famous for its wood craftsmanship. All of our nutcrackers are handcrafted and hand painted by small companies traditionally located in Seiffen, Germany. Each nutcracker is unique in its own way. We carry nutcrackers by Christian Ulbricht, Hanno Junghänel, Erzgebirgische Volkskunst Richard Glässer, and Seiffener Volkskunst. Explore our Limited Editions and one of a kind collectibles.
