The Rubezahl, or Lord of the Mountain Weather and Prince of the Gnomes, is from a legend or folklore about a Mountain Spirit going as far back as the late 1700s. To those who are good, he is friendly and kind, giving presents and good weather. When someone mocks him, he sends storms and severe cold fierce weather. This Prince of Mountain Weather German Nutcracker stands about 40cm tall (16 inches) and was made in the Erzgebirge region of Germany in the village of Seiffen where the wooden nutcracker was first created. Prince of Weather Mountain Storms 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 1786.
