Steinbach Nutcrackers – German Nutcrackers

Wooden nutcrackers in the shape of soldiers, knights, kings and other shapes have been around since at least the 15th century. The first nutcrackers were considered to be a good luck symbol in Germany and according to folklore, a puppet-maker won a nut cracking contest by creating a doll with a mouth for a lever to crack the nuts. While modern nutcrackers maintain this lever system to open and close the mouth, most nutcrackers sold today, like the ones at Christmas Tree Hill, are purely decorative.
Steinbach Nutcrackers

Steinbach has a long history in making traditional German nutcrackers. The heirloom-worthy pieces are fine examples of German woodworking, with each nutcracker being hand-carved and hand-painted for a one-of-a-kind piece that you won't find anywhere else.
