Christmas Tree Nutcracker
Original Steinbach. Handcrafted in Germany. Box S 1660
This piece is absolutely gorgeous and different than many of the other steinbach nutcrackers, this figure is in the shape of a Christmas tree, colored in a beautiful Kelly green and embellished with red, pearalized and golden 'ornaments' on his two tiered hat with golden star atop, and three tier on the base of the piece. Golden bells adorn his shoulders and a rope belt at his waist with hanging golden bells make for a luscious and amazing piece. His hands are a pearalized rose color and he wears brown boots. On his left arm, he holds a beautiful little red and gold bird with white tail. The bird is pegged in to his arm and sits comfortably. Size 17"
