German Nutcracker Glass Christmas Ornament
Hand-painted with stunning reds, yellows and blues, our traditional German nutcracker glass Christmas ornament is an essential part of any German Tannenbaum. Mouth-blown in Poland by master tradesmen, the German glass Christmas ornament features glittering accents of brass buttons and golden epaulets.
Always at attention, the German nutcracker Christmas ornament stands over six inches tall. He holds a Christmas wreath and star scepter while standing on a drum.
German nutcrackers begin their history in the Erzgebirge region of Germany (well known for their wood carving skills) depicting a satirical view of the ruling class or well-known authoritative figures, however the German figural Nutcracker did not become well known until Tchaikovsky’s ballet "The Nutcracker Suite.”
