Here is the Traditional Red King German Nutcracker dressed in the tradional robes of the nutcrackers with his red tunic and yellow britches. This Traditional Red King Nutcracker stands about 36 cm tall (14 1/4 inches) and was handcrafted in the woodshops nestled in the Erzgebirge Mountain region of Germany in the village of Seiffen where the wooden nutcracker was first born! This Traditional Red King 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. Traditional Red King 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.
There is nothing like a German Nutcracker to make an entrance at a party when you bring him as a gift.
