There's nothing quite like an original Erzgebirge Nutcracker.
This beautiful Nutcracker in the shape of a Soldier has a lever at the back which will open and close the mouth in which you traditionally crack nuts.
Hand-made in Germany in the Erzgebirge (Ore Mountains) in about 130 steps from locally sourced wood.
PLEASE NOTE: Even though this will definitely crack nuts I would personally not use it as this might chip the paint around the mouth/teeth area. There are more efficient nutcrackers around but few as impressive as this one.
