All Nutcrackers

All Nutcrackers

Decorative German Nutcrackers became non-functional pieces of home decor dating back to the 15th Century. Most of the pieces dating back to the 15th century were functional and less ornate. These decorative non-functional pieces were traditionally made in the likeness of Soldiers, Kinds, Knights, as well as other professions. Some of these ornate pieces were decorated with various specialty paints, brass / aluminum / and silver pieces, leather straps, animal fur, and many other small detailed materials which add both character and value to the Nutcracker. Before the 15th century, nutcrackers were generally made of metals and were rarely ornate pieces of folk art.
