Ready to stand guard this Railroad Night Watchman German Nutcracker is poised to protect the railroad. He has a red hat and a dark blue uniform. He stands about 14 1/2" tall and was made in the Erzgebirge region of Germany in the village of Seiffen where the wooden nutcracker was first created.
This Railroad Night Watchman 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. Railroad Night Watchman 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.
Impress your friends forever. Bring a very handmade German Nutcracker as a gift for the Holidays. The Nutcracker gift is a lovely gesture they will remember throughout the Christmas Holiday season.
