Nutcracker Story

Nutcrackers have been made in Germany in the Erzgebirge (Ore Mountains) since hundreds of years. The Erzgebirge is located along the border between Germany and the Czech Republic, Southwest of Dresden.
During the dark and cold winter nights the men kept themselves busy with the carving of wooden utensils and artifacts.
The tool "nutcracker" used to crack nuts and was given a face. Gradually nutcrackers developed into all kinds of figures known to the people of the time.

The nutcracker figure became the leading character in the story of the Nutcracker, about a family gathering on Christmas eve. This Nutcracker fairy tale is the basis for the Nutcracker Ballet written by Tchaikovsky. Every year during the Christmas season this Nutcracker ballet is performed in numerous concert halls around the world.

Erzgebirge Nutcrackers

Nutcracker king Today hundreds of Nutcracker figures are in production, many still in the Erzgebirge. Famous producers of Nutcrackers are Steinbach, Ulbricht and Adler. Many Nutcrackers are still made in Germany, but also in several other countries.

Christmas decorations light up our homes in the darkest time of the year. The firry perfume of the decorated Christmas tree, the glittery Christmas decorations and the sparkling lights change the mood of winter. Our collection of Nutcrackers help create the warm atmosphere of the Holiday Season. The colorful and glittery "dolls" turn our room into a festive place. Enjoy exploring our great collection of Nutcrackers.
