Dressed formally in his Autumn Tunic of green with his pumpkin britches this German Nutcracker King stands 36 cm tall (over 14 inches) and was handcrafted in the woodshops nestled in the Erzgebirge Mountain region of Germany in the village of Seiffen where the wooden nutcracker was first born! This King in Autumn Attire Nutcracker was made by the Fuchtner family and it was Wilhelm Friedrich Fuchtner that is credited with first creating the wooden nutcracker back in 1870. As far back as 1786 Gotthelf Friedrich Fuchtner was selling wooden figurines at the Dresdener Striezel Market to supplement his family’s carpenter business. German King Nutcracker Autumn Attire is signed by Volker Fuchtner the head of the family Nutcracker business (and Volker Fuchtner is the 6th generation of Fuchtner’s running this Nutcracker family business). A true collectible that has a history and a beauty that will last for generations to come.
