Nutcracker Prince Christmas Ornament
44007 Merck Family's Old World Christmas
Ornament measures approximately 4 1/2"
Free gift box included.
Nutcrackers were first carved by commoners as a joke because it was considered fun to make a little wooden king or soldier do the menial work of cracking the tough nuts. Today, nutcrackers are often associated with the Christmas holidays due to their whimsical nature and the very popular Nutcracker Suite Ballet.
This traditional and beautiful glass ornament was carefully mouth-blown into a finely crafted mold. Then a hot solution of liquid silver was poured inside. Finally, it was delicately hand-painted and glittered for you to enjoy and cherish as a holiday heirloom!
