King in Autumn Formals German Nutcracker. Looking more formal in his beige tunic and yet sporting a not-too-serious side of life with his pumpkin britches this King in Autumn Formals German Nutcracker stands about 36 cm tall (over 14 inches) and was made by craftsmen in the workshops in the Erzgebirge region where the wooden nutcracker was first made Seiffen Germany. King in Autumn Formals German 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. King in Autumn Formals German Nutcracker 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.
