Here is the Otto of Habsburg German Nutcracker ready to command the field artillery in conquest. Otto dressed in his red tunic with rifle at his side stands about 40.5 cm tall (almost 16 inches) and was made in the Erzgebirge region of Germany in the village of Seiffen where the wooden nutcracker was first created. This 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. Otto of Habsburg in Red 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.
