Soldier Nutcracker Christmas Ornament - Red Coat
44041 Merck Family's Old World Christmas
Soldier Nutcracker is 6" in ht and 2" in width.
Nutcrackers were first carved by commoners as a joke because it was considered fun to make a little wooden king or soldier to do the menial work of cracking the tough nuts.
Today, nutcrackers are often associated with the Christmas holiday due to their whimsical nature and the very popular Nutcracker Suite Ballet.
This traditional and beautiful glass nutcracker soldier 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!
